Christine Evans (Bianco) is a kindergarten assistant at Edgely Prep, an elite Manhattan private school with an acceptance rate that puts Harvard's to shame. On the day applications are due, Edgely's head of admissions is ousted in a scandal, and Christine is unexpectedly thrust into the job. With phones ringing off the hook, Christine must balance beleaguered applicants, venal administrators, and an army of parents who will stop at nothing to get their kids in.

A timely and incisive comedy, APPLICATION PENDING pokes loving fun at America's obsession with getting our children into the school that will not only teach finger-painting but also determine the rest of their natural lives. This new Off-Broadway play sends up our perceptions about opportunity, how we attain it, and what it ultimately means to be a good parent.
