An­other show of in­ter­est to the LGBT com­mu­nity is Ike Holter’s “Exit Strat­egy,” ‘The Leg­end of Ge­or­gia McBride’ March 18 – April 16 Ac­tor’s Ex­press 887 W. Ma­ri­etta St., At­lanta, GA 30318­tor­sex­ ‘Exit Strat­egy’ Through March 18 True Col­ors The­atre Com­pany at South­west Arts Cen­ter 915 New Hope Road. S.W., At­lanta, GA 30331 www.true­col­orsthe­ be­ing staged by True Col­ors The­atre Com­pany. Ac­tor Matt Busch plays Ricky, an as­sis­tant prin­ci­pal in a school hav­ing to close down. As it does, ten­sions flare in the dis­trict, and he is tasked with deal­ing with all the teach­ers and their var­i­ous re­ac­tions.

The char­ac­ter is gay, some­thing the au­di­ence dis­cov­ers very early on, but who he is in a re­la­tion­ship with is not widely known by his col­leagues.

“Ricky is un­com­fort­able show­ing af­fec­tion in the work­place, in case it is per­ceived as an in­ap­pro­pri­ate re­la­tion­ship,” Busch said. “He pre­tends that peo­ple don’t know about him when in fact they do.”

As part of his re­search, he talked to fel­low ad­min­is­tra­tors to get their take on how in­ter­nal re­la­tion­ships are per­ceived – and what hap­pens when they are un­earthed, as it does in the con­text of this ac­claimed work.
