*'The perfect play for our age of disagreement.'* __New York Times__



Every child is welcomed at the progressive Eureka Day school in Berkeley, California – it's a point of pride for the parents on the Executive Committee.



But when a public health scare erupts, it turns out tolerance and togetherness are no match for mumps…



*'If consensus was easy, everyone would do it.'*



In Jonathan Spector's timely and hysterical comedy, polite debate descends into ideological warfare, as a democratic utopia tears itself apart.



Academy, Golden Globe and Emmy Award winner __Helen Hunt__ (As Good As It Gets, The Sessions, Mad About You) stars alongside __Kirsten Foster __(Life of Pi, West End), __Mark McKinney__ (Superstore), __Ben Schnetzer__ (Pride) and __Susan Kelechi Watson__ (This Is Us), directed by __Katy Rudd__ (Camp Siegfried, The Ocean at the End of the Lane).

Review: EUREKA DAY, Old Vic
by Franco Milazzo - September 26, 2022


Jonathan Spector’s much-anticipated comedy Eureka Day starring Helen Hunt explores how a group of people with the same overt goals can diverge so wildly in their approaches to meeting them. By making its lead an opponent of vaccination, though, it treads a dangerous path.
