We'll tell you as soon as tickets go on sale:
Admissions is a new play by Joshua Harmon (Bad Jews, Significant Other) that explodes the ideals and contradictions of liberal white America.
Sherri Rosen-Mason (Alex Kingston) 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.

London Theatre Review: Admissions at London's Trafalgar Studios
It’s so unfair living in a society which privileges rich and middle-class white people, right? So what to do? Dabble in a version of social engineering like Sherri Rosen- Mason, a white middle-class Head of Admissions of a private school in America? Alex Kingston’s Sherri is embarrassingly politically aware and has chosen to redress the balance by devising her own system to increase the proportion of students of colour admitted to the private school. Kingston is superb as Sherri, who believes, and lets everyone know it, she is fighting the good fight against white privilege, whilst lacking insight into her own privileged position. Sherri is exposed as taking a tokenistic approach to levelling the playing field. Sherri’s hypocrisy is also revealed in the way she manages her son Charlie not getting into Yale, when Charlie’s friend Perry, who is bi-racial, does.

London Theatre Review: Admissions at Trafalgar Studios
In short, Admissions is not to be missed.
I have to admit, I saw Alex Kingston’s name in the cast list and that sold it to me straight away. I’m a big fan of Doctor Who and love her acting in that so I was hoping her talent translated to theatre.
