‘A needle-sharp comedy that packs a smart and timely punch.’

'The perfect play for our age of disagreement.' New York Times

Every child is welcomed at the progressive Eureka Day school in Berkeley, California – it's a point of pride for the parents on the Executive Committee.

But when a public health scare erupts, it turns out tolerance and togetherness are no match for mumps…

'If consensus was easy, everyone would do it.'

In Jonathan Spector's timely and hysterical comedy, polite debate descends into ideological warfare, as a democratic utopia tears itself apart.

Academy, Golden Globe and Emmy Award winner Helen Hunt (As Good As It Gets, The Sessions, Mad About You) stars alongside Kirsten Foster (Life of Pi, West End), Mark McKinney (Superstore), Ben Schnetzer (Pride) and Susan Kelechi Watson (This Is Us), directed by Katy Rudd (Camp Siegfried, The Ocean at the End of the Lane).

    I enjoyed the play. The first part was hilarious , the second part more subtle and complex.

    Brilliant and hilarious! This play is so well written set within a woke school’s PTA meetings. The talented cast had perfect timing, giving the audience time to react to the outrageously funny text messages popping up on the drop down screen, a truly ‘laugh out loud’ scene for the entire audience. We loved it.
