Photo Flash: The Stars Come Out for Press Night for ADMISSIONS at Trafalgar Studios

Alex Kingston (ER, Doctor Who) stars in Admissions, from the writer of acclaimed hit Bad Jews, direct from New York's Lincoln Centre Theater, the producers of Oslo.

Following its hugely successful run at LCT, Admissions opened at London's Trafalgar Studios on 28 February. Press Night was held on 12 March, and you can check out photos of the stars in attendance below!

Admissions plays a strictly limited season until 25 May, before embarking on a UK tour. The production is directed by Daniel Aukin.

Following the run at Trafalgar Studios, Admissions will tour the UK playing at the Richmond Theatre (w/c 27 May 2019), the Cambridge Arts Theatre (w/c 3 June), the Malvern Festival Theatre (w/c 10 June 2019) and the Lyric Theatre at The Lowry in Salford (w/c 17 June 2019).

The New York production received huge critical acclaim during its LCT run, with The New York Times describing the show as "astonishing and daring", The Hollywood Reporter calling the show "smart, hilarious and provocative". Theatre Mania hailed it "a scorching new drama... lands like a gut-punch" and Time Out New York raving about it and awarding the show four stars. Admissions also won the Drama Desk and Outer Critics Circle Awards for Best Play.

Sherri (Alex Kingston) 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 is 90 minutes long, but the debate will take you through the night.

Alex Kingston is a highly acclaimed, award-winning star of stage and screen. She is best known for playing Dr. Elizabeth Corday on ER and River Song in BBC's Doctor Who. Other TV credits include Law & Order, Lost in Austen and most recently A Discovery of Witches. Her varied stage career has included roles in Macbeth opposite Kenneth Branagh and One Flew Over The Cuckoos Nest with Christian Slater, as well as frequent work with the Royal Shakespeare Company.

Admissions is produced by Simon Friend, Trafalgar Theatre Productions and Gavin Kalin in association with Anthology Theatre.
