Eureka Day

'The perfect play for our age of disagreement.' New York Times

Every child is welcomed at the progressive Eureka Day school in Berkeley, California – it's a point of pride for the parents on the Executive Committee.
But when a public health scare erupts, it turns out tolerance and togetherness are no match for mumps…

'If consensus was easy, everyone would do it.'

In Jonathan Spector's timely and hysterical comedy, polite debate descends into ideological warfare, as a democratic utopia tears itself apart.

Academy, Golden Globe and Emmy Award winner Helen Hunt (As Good As It Gets, The Sessions, Mad About You) stars alongside Kirsten Foster (Life of Pi, West End), Mark McKinney (Superstore), Ben Schnetzer (Pride) and Susan Kelechi Watson (This Is Us), directed by Katy Rudd (Camp Siegfried, The Ocean at the End of the Lane).

A co-production with Sonia Friedman Productions

Please Note: From 13–16 Sep Helen Hunt will not perform and the role of Suzanne will be played by an understudy.
