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 twenty-first century. But when their only son sets his sights on an Ivy League university, personal ambition collides with progressive values, with convulsive results. A no-holds-barred look at privilege, power, and the perils of hypocrisy.
"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
