Available virtually November 21-27.

In January 2020, Chicago multimedia artist Nikki Lynette’s celebrated stage play “Get Out Alive” premiered in the LookOut Series at Steppenwolf Theatre, before the pandemic shut the stages of the city down. Electric and thrilling, this film adaptation of the show uses storytelling, song, dance and visual media to Nikki’s offbeat and honest approach to share her mental health journey. GET OUT ALIVE is an unapologetic celebration of Black life, and a love letter to Black culture led by an intersectional team of queer, Black, trans, and women creatives. Content consideration: themes of depression, suicide and racism.
