Alex Kingston (ER, Doctor Who) stars in this award-winning and bitingly funny new comedy from the writer of acclaimed hit Bad Jews, direct from New York's Lincoln...

Overview

Sherri is the Head of Admissions at a private school, fighting to diversify the student intake and she wants you to know about it.

When her son is deferred from his university of choice, and his best friend - who 'ticks more boxes' - is accepted, Sherri's personal ambition collides with her progressive values.

Critic reviews

A painfully predictable, screamingly schematic play from Bad Jews writer Joshua Harmon, starring Alex Kingston

The Stage

An astute but improvable skewering of liberal hypocrisy

The Telegraph

A frequently furious debate play that swirls around issues of entitlement, white privilege and positive discrimination

London Theatre

A fiery reduction of the divisions that fuel national conversations of access and privilege

The Upcoming

Provocative, bracingly funny and persistently challenging, this is a drama with claws

Broadway World

Covering race, class and educational bias, this is a play guaranteed to make white liberals shift uneasily in their seats

The Guardian

US college drama on educational prejudice needs some revision

Evening Standard

It's a clever production of a script which doesn't deliver on its final A-grade

WhatsOnStage

Alex Kingston stars in this woeful American comedy

Time Out

What a punch to the kidneys for liberal snoots. Peppery, provocative, riveting stuff

The Times

Despite his best intentions Harmon’s play fails to make the case for more nuanced thinking

Financial Times
