Is it part of the irony within Joshua Harmon’s Admissions that a play about white privilege and the hypocrisy of white liberals has only white characters?
Admissions is by the same Broadway writer as Bad Jews and even better. And nicely topical too, both sides of the Atlantic, since it’s about the middle-class obsession with shoehorning their 17- and 18-year-old kids into the ‘right’ colleges.
One of the best things about Admissions at Trafalgar Studios is how far it will get up the noses of the ‘woke’ twitterati. I can think of a couple of agenda-toting print critics who’ll also be hammering their keyboards like warriors to be sneeringly unpleasant about the play.

Joshua Harmon doesn’t beat about the bush when tackling difficult questions about diversity and equality in Admissions, a biting new comedy that couldn’t be more relevant, especially to parents.
I’m genuinely not sure Admissions could be done much better than it’s done here. If you come expecting an entertaining comedy that will make you occasionally go ‘oh actually that’s a good point’ you won’t leave disappointed.
Alex Kingston (ER, Doctor Who) will star in the award-winning new comedy Admissions from Joshua Harmon, the writer of acclaimed hit Bad Jews, direct from New York‘s Lincoln Centre Theater.
