Admissions

Across the country, students will be applying for university. But, what happens when your parents are the teachers who are trying to change the system? Applying for university is at the heart of Admissions, a play coming to Trafalgar Studios in 2019. Written by Joshua Harmon, it’s a show that’s set to look at the role of power, privilege and inequality in the university system, where what you say can hold powerful consequences. So, if you’re interested to find out more about what goes into saying yes, you’ll want to book your tickets to be admitted into Admissions.

As the show opens, you’ll meet Sherri Rosen-Mason, the head of admissions for The Hillcrest School, a fancy preparatory school in New England. When she realises that the school’s prospectus only has three people of colour inside, she shakes up how the school advertises itself with the help of husband and headteacher Bill.

While the school now looks progressive, it becomes apparent that the pair do not hold the views they advertise. As their son Charlie applies to Ivy League universities across the country, the pair navigate their privileged white status to take the steps for what’s best for their sons. But, going against what they preach may not be the best practice, as you’ll find out in Admissions.

This isn’t the first time Trafalgar Studios has been the resident theatre for a show challenging “whiteness” and privilege. Misty and Nine Night both played at the venue, with both productions written by Black playwrights. Set to be an exciting and insightful look into what goes on in the application process, don’t put yourself at the back of the queue. If you’re looking for some political heat to warm up the colder months, you’ll want to go to Admissions.

Piercing and provocative, Admissions is 90 minutes long, but the debate will take you through the night.

Alex Kingston and Sarah Hadland star in Admissions, with Kingston's television credits including Doctor Who, Arrow and ER.

Admissions marks the fourth play written by Joshua Harmon, but this is the first time that his play has made it to the West End.

It is estimated that nearly 20 million people were enrolled in universities and colleges across the United States in 2018.
