ABOUT THE SHOW
Starring Kat Stewart (Heisenberg) alongside Heidi Arena (Born Yesterday), Simon Maiden (A View from the Bridge), William McKenna (Harry Potter and the Cursed Child) and Deidre Rubenstein (Shakespeare in Love), Admissions is a scorching satire that holds a mirror up to privilege and power through the lens of the education system. Winner of the Drama Desk and Outer Critics Circle awards for Best Play, it’s both deliberately provocative and caustically funny as it takes a subversive side-swipe at hypocritical good intentions.
Sherri Rosen-Mason is head of admissions at an exclusive high school; her husband Bill is the principal. They are passionately committed to increasing the number of students at the school from culturally and linguistically varied backgrounds, and they’re starting to see results. But when their son’s application to Yale is deferred, it sets in motion a chain of events that will test their convictions to the very core.
Directed by Gary Abrahams, who previously won acclaim with Joshua Harmon’s hit play Bad Jews, Admissions is a biting comedy that asks audiences to question just how far they are willing to go to see the change they want in the world.
