Joshua Harmon's new comedy Admissions in London starring Alex Kingston
Sherri is the Head of Admissions at a New England prep school, fighting to diversify the student intake. Alongside her husband, the school's Headmaster, they've largely succeeded in bringing a stodgy institution into the twenty-first century. But 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. Joshua Harmon's new play explodes the ideals and contradictions of liberal white America.
The cast features Alex Kingston as 'Sherri' with Ben Edelman as 'Charlie', Margot Leicester as 'Roberta', Sarah Hadland as 'Stevie' and Andrew Wooddall as 'Bill'. Directed by Daniel Aukin.
Joshua Harmon's previous play Bad Jews most recently enjoyed an extended five month season in London, first at the Arts Theatre in 2015, and then at the Haymarket Theatre the following year.
Ben Edelman is reprising his acclaimed role as 'Charlie' in this production from the March 2018 New York Premiere production at the Lincoln Center's Newhouse Theater which was also directed by Daniel Aukin.
Alex Kingston is probably best known for playing the roles of 'Dr. Elizabeth Corday' in the US television drama series ER for NBC, and 'River Song' in the British television science fiction series Doctor Who for the BBC. Her West End stage credits include the role of 'Nurse Ratched' in Terry Johnson and Tamara Harvey's revival of Dale Wasserman's play One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest at the Garrick Theatre in 2006.
Margot Leicester's London theatre credits include the role of 'Camilla' in Rupert Goold's prduction of Mike Bartlett's play King Charles III at the Wyndham's Theatre in 2014; the role of 'Vi' in Terry Johnson's production of Shelagh Stephenson's black comedy The Memory of Water at the Vaudeville Theatre in 1999; and the role of 'Patricia Hamilton' in David Thacker's production of Arthur Miller's The Last Yankee at the Duke of York's Theatre in 1993.
