★★★ Edgy and timely. Wechsler's production at Theater Wit is fast-paced, provocative and, crucially, acted throughout with the right combination of intellectual smugness, personal vulnerability and familial love.Chris Jones, Chicago Tribune

From the author of our hit productions Bad Jews and Significant Other comes a drama you won't be able to stop talking about.

How far would you go to get your kid into college?

Sherri Rosen-Mason—the head of admissions at a New Hampshire boarding school—thought she knew. Deeply committed to diversity, Sherri has boosted the number of students of color from 6% to 18%. Sherri’s dedication is put to the test when her son Charlie, an outstanding Hillcrest student who has dreamed of attending Yale since he was a child, learns his application has been deferred. Convinced that Yale based its decisions on race, Charlie claims to be a victim of reverse discrimination. As her son lashes out, Sherri is forced to confront just how far her commitment to equality really goes. Is she a true disciple or total hypocrite?

Friendships will be destroyed, futures redirected, and families brought to the breaking point in a funny, sharp-witted, devastating and shockingly blunt evening about the perils of privilege and whiteness.
