ADMISSIONS is a play about which playwright Joshua Harmon says: Although the play is called Admissions and is about an Admissions officer, it's not really about applying to college. That's the container, I suppose, to be able to ask the larger questions with which the play is trying to engage. At its core, this play is an examination of whiteness: white privilege, white power, white anxiety, white guilt, all of itThis play is trying to hold up a mirror to white liberalism, while remaining very conscious of the fact that this is just one narrow slice of a much larger conversation.

BWW Review: ADMISSIONS Highlights The Good, Bad, And Ugly Of White Liberalism
September 26, 2019
At the core of the play is a family examining what it means to benefit from white privilege in a racially biased society. Director, David Jarrott succeeds in turning Joshua Harmon's words into an accelerant that forces white progressives to reexamine themselves and where their allyship stands. This production starkly displays the characters' problematic views and statements while still leaving room for audiences to relate to the family's dynamic. In the end, the play is left unresolved and open-ended leaving plenty of room for discussion post-show.
