Admissions

When: Tuesdays-Sundays. Continues through Nov. 11 2018

Sherri Rosen-Mason works as the admissions director for a prep school, but she's "one of the good ones." She fights both to diversify the school and its brochures, which is right in line with her ardent progressive politics. Understandably, Sherri is blindsided when her teenage son Charlie claims his mother's convictions and policies deny him opportunities, and the proof is that Yale has passed him over while his mixed race friend was accepted. Can Sherri and her husband Bill remain true to their ideals if their son is denied the quality education they want him to have? Joshua Harmon's play Admissions, a deep dive into the nature of white privilege, opens the Repertory Theatre of St. Louis' Studio Series. Performances are Tuesday through Sunday (October 26 to November 11) at the Loretto-Hilton Center (130 Edgar Road; www.repstl.org). Tickets are $46 to $71.
