    Guest: Ike Holter

    Playwright IKE HOLTER’s “Exit Strategy” premiered last week in Philadelphia.  Presented by the Philadelphia Theatre Company, the play is about a dilapidated Chicago school slated for closure and the chaos that ensues in its final days as teachers and students try to save it.  It’s a story that could be set in a Philadelphia public school.  Holter’s play has received rave reviews and he comes in this hour to talk about “Exit Strategy” and writing for the stage.
