It's not often that a play receives the full spectrum of responses from critics. This provocative comedy has had everything from 5 star to 1 star reviews, so you know that at the very least it's going to be an interesting night. Set in the US, Admissions follows a family of white liberals whose principles and personal ambitions clash when their son doesn’t get into Yale, but his best friend, who is black, does. Hypocrisy, privilege and prejudice are all in the mix in this sharp comedy starring Alex Kingston.
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.
