An extraordinarily useful and excruciating satire — of the left, by the left, for the left — for today.New York Times

How far would you go to help your child? Bill and Sherri Mason, the headmaster and head of admissions respectively of Hillcrest, a second-tier New Hampshire boarding school thought they knew. When this very liberal, very progressive couple arrived 15 years ago, the student population at Hillcrest was 94 percent white. Deeply committed to diversity, Sherri has boosted the number of students of color from six to 18 percent, a figure she still considers embarrassingly low. However, Sherri’s dedication is put to the test when their son Charlie, an outstanding Hillcrest student who has dreamed of attending Yale since he was a child, learns his application has been deferred. Complicating matters, Charlie’s classmate and best friend Perry, whose father is African-American has been admitted to Yale. Convinced that Yale based its decisions on race, Charlie claims to be a victim of reverse discrimination. And as their son lashes out, Sherri and Bill are forced to confront just how far their commitment to equality really goes. Are they true disciples? Or total hypocrites?

Admissions is funny, sharp-witted, devastating and shockingly blunt, much like Harmon’s earlier plays Bad Jews and Significant Other. Like his two previous hits, Admissions promises to be a show about toxic whiteness and privilege you won't be able to stop talking about.
