'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).


Thu 06 Sep 7:30pm – Mon 31 Oct 7:30pm

    In the beginning I thought this is going to be everything I dislike. Half- finished sentences and interrupted conversations. However, as the play developed, I warmed to it. It was very well done. In Act 2 the personalities came alive with all their vulnerabilities. The set was simple and appropriate.

    The play is a perfect portrait of the American society and all of its inclusivity language present nowadays. It also portraits quite well a school in California! It had it’s funny moments and seeing Helen Hunt was a great addition to the play. Unfortunately,I think the play is too immersed in the American culture and not all translates into a British (or international) audience. But the American audience loved it. It was made for them. The scene of the video call with the chat on the back was hilarious, but before, the play was quite boring. I ended up leaving at the interval as I thought nothing good be better than that scene. I loved that scene and wanted to leave on a high moment!
