AUDITION NOTICE – ADMISSIONS
TheatreLAB is thrilled to announce auditions for the first show in Season 7: Power & Privilege:
Admissions by Joshua Harmon
directed by TheatreLAB Artistic Director, Deejay Gray. Auditions will be held on Saturday, August 3rd from 10am-2pm at The Basement.
ABOUT THE SHOW:
Sherri Rosen-Mason 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 21st Century. But when their only son sets his sights on an Ivy League university, personal ambition collides with progressive values, with convulsive results. A new play from Joshua Harmon (Bad Jews, Significant Other) that explores the ideals and contradictions of Liberal White America. Winner of the 2018 Drama Desk and Outer Critics Circle Awards for Best Play!
"Astonishing and daring. An extraordinarily useful and excruciating satire - of the left, by the left, for the left - for today."
- THE NEW YORK TIMES
"The nuanced and competing truths in this 90-minute play are like a first act that dares its spectators to create a second out of post-show conversations." - TIME OUT NEW YORK
"A smart, hilarious and provocative drama." - THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER
