ASTONISHING AND DARING, ONE OF THE HOTTEST NEW PLAYS ON THE AMERICAN THEATRE SCENE
Admissions, winner of the 2018 Drama Desk Award for Outstanding Play, is a timely and powerful play that explores privilege, race, and the unbridgeable American cultural divide.
Sherri Mason is head of the admissions department at a New England prep school, fighting to diversify the student body. Alongside her husband, the school’s headmaster, they’ve largely succeeded at bringing a stodgy institution into the twenty first century. But when their only son sets his sights on an Ivy League university, personal ambition collides with progressive values, and a shocking decision leads the family down a road they never imagined traveling. This smart and provocative new drama will keep you on the edge of your seat and have you talking all the way home.
