West End audiences have until 25 May to see Admissions, Daniel Aukin’s production of critically acclaimed playwright Joshua Harmon’s (Bad Jews) controversial new comedy, when its season at Trafalgar Studios comes to a close ahead of a UK tour.

Alex Kingston said: “We’ve been blown away by the response we’ve had from audiences and it’s great that this work has triggered so much discussion. West End audiences have been so supportive and we are looking forward to starting more hard hitting conversations and continuing the debate up and down the country when we go on tour later this month.”

Kingston plays Sherri who is Head of Admissions at a private school, a liberal who is fighting to diversify the student intake and a mother who wants the best for her son. When her son is deferred from his university of choice, and his best friend – who ‘ticks more boxes' – is accepted, her personal ambition collides with her progressive values and she is forced to make a choice between her beliefs and what’s right for her son.

Following the run at Trafalgar Studios, Admissions will tour the UK playing at the Richmond Theatre (27 May – 1 June), Cambridge Arts Theatre (3 – 8 June), Malvern Festival Theatre (10 – 15 June 2019) and The Lowry, Salford (17 – 22 June 2019).

Other cast members include Andrew Woodall (Bill), Margot Leicester (Roberta) and Ben Edelman (Charlie). Edelman is reprisisng the role of Charlie having first performed it at the Lincoln Centre Theater production where critics hailed his performance as “ardant”  (Time Out NYC) and “raw” (The Hollywood Reporter).
