"Astonishing and daring. An extraordinarily useful and excruciating satire - of the left, by the left, for the left - for today."

The New York Times, March 12, 2018

ADMISSIONS is a new play that explodes the ideals and contradictions of liberal white America. Sherri Rosen-Mason (Jessica Hecht) is head of the admissions department at a New England prep school, fighting to diversify the student body.  Alongside her husband, the school's Headmaster, they've largely succeeded in bringing a stodgy institution into the twenty-first century. But when their only son sets his sights on an Ivy League university, personal ambition collides with progressive values, with convulsive results.
