Admissions - West End


Alex Kingston (ER, Doctor Who) stars in this award-winning and bitingly funny new comedy from the writer of acclaimed hit Bad Jews, direct from New York's Lincoln Center, producers of Oslo.

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.

Piercing and provocative, Admissions dares to question whether the race to the top is ever simply black and white.

News emerged today that Hollywood actresses Felicity Huffman and Lori Loughlin were among 50 wealthy people charged in a college cheating scam dumbed 'Varsity Blues', in which they allegedly paid bribes of up to $6 million to secure places for their offspring at top universities. In a strange twist of fate, the breaking story coincides with the UK opening of Joshua Harmon's incendiary satire Admissions, which demonstrates that even those with the most devout liberal principles about progress and fairness can falter when it comes to their own family and self-interest.
