Starring Debra Mooney, John C. Moskoff, James B. Sikking
"The coolest part of Exit Strategy is how the wildly engrossing plot is balanced so perfectly with wonderful character development and effortless underplaying by each of the engaging stars...Casey Stangl keeps the pace propulsive, but the wheels of the tensely churing narrative are remarkably invisible." — The Burbank Leader

About the Show

Written by Bill Semans and Roy M. Close
Directed by Casey Stangl

Opening Night is October 23 at 8pm.

Exit Strategy poses the question: is one moment of exhilaration worth the risk of a lifetime? That's the choice for James (James B. Sikking) and Mae (Debra Mooney), two elderly people on fixed incomes and a great deal of time on their hands. They're thirty days from being evicted from the shabby rooming house they call home, and there's little to do but wait for the inevitable. Enter Alex (John C. Moskoff), a man on a mission with an intriguing proposition, who jolts awake Mae and James' very existence. Join Mae, James and Alex on an adventure where old people discover new dreams and learn it's never too late to take a chance.
