At Eureka Day School, a progressive charter school in Berkeley, all points of view are respected, all voices heard. After all, these parents only want the best for their kids. However, when the issue of vaccinations breaks out like a bad case of chickenpox, tolerance for opposing views undergoes a stress test that is both hilarious and harrowing.

Mosaic Theater Company Of DC Announces 5th Anniversary #WOKESEASON5
March 29, 2019
From Founding Artistic Director, Ari Roth: 'The eight amazing plays in Mosaic's 5th Anniversary Season offer up Stages of Awakening-urgent, exhilarating and humble-that hurtle our characters, and by extension, us, forward to new levels of awareness, puncturing bubbles of pretension along the way. To be 'woke' is to be no longer in the dark about what's happening around us; about the systems of oppression and persistence of racism that permeate daily life. But it can be tricky terrain, these states of 'wokeness,' leading to pats-on-the-back of self- congratulations and new forms of denial. Our extraordinary playwrights are hip to our follies and foibles, just as they're poised to wake us up to the realities of our moment and the relevance of history still knocking on our door.
