Life is full of challenges. It is impossible to make it throughout the day without facing some sort of challenge. It can be as small as you’ve run out of cream for your morning cup of coffee or as large as you’ve become addicted to alcohol and/or drugs. In PEOPLE, PLACES, & THINGS, Duncan Macmillan explores what it means to struggle with addiction.

BWW Review: ADMISSIONS: Biting Comedy Asks You to Check Your Privilege Photo BWW Review: ADMISSIONS: Biting Comedy Asks You to Check Your Privilege
by Nancy Grossman - Nov 1, 2019

It's probably just a coincidence, but two fine plays currently running at two award-winning regional theaters share an unusual commonality. Both focus on the issue of white privilege and the prevailing attitude that acknowledging its existence will end it. In THE THANKSGIVING PLAY at Lyric Stage Company of Boston, the idea is to honor Native Americans in an elementary school play without benefit of any of them participating. In ADMISSIONS, receiving its Boston premiere at SpeakEasy Stage Company, a couple of white liberal educators work hard to expand racial diversity at their small New England prep school, but their progressive values are tested when their exceptional son's Ivy League dreams are derailed. Remarkably, there are no indigenous people or people of color on stage in either production, an intentional, pointed omission by the playwrights.
