As the admissions director at a New England prep school, Sherri Rosen-Mason aims to change the school for the better through increasing inclusivity and diversity. When her son and his Black American best friend both apply to Yale, Sherri’s vision for her son’s future gets in the way of her liberal, white beliefs. Admissions is yet another stunning, raw, honest and hilarious depiction of humanity by Joshua Harmon, the author of Bad Jews.

From parenting to privilege, this contemporary American play is as thought-provoking as it is relevant. This astonishing piece of playwriting challenges the notion of privilege and deserving a seat at the table.Stafford Arima
A smart, provocative drama with a rich vein of humor that pulls the rug out from under liberal white America, letting nobody off scot-free.Hollywood Reporter
Admissions is an extraordinarily useful and excruciating satire – of the left, by the left, for the left – for today.New York Times
