By Laura O'Neill

See the award-winning playAdmissions, at The Lowry.

The Lowry is giving theatre lovers have the chance to see a critically acclaimed, award-winning play direct from the West End and New York.

Admissions tells the story of Sherri who is Head of Admissions at a private school, a liberal who is fighting to diversify the student intake and a mother who wants the best for her son.

When her son is deferred from his university of choice and his best friend – who is bi-racial and ‘ticks more boxes’ – is accepted, her personal ambition collides with her progressive values and she is forced to make a choice between her beliefs and what’s right for her son.


Hollywood star Alex Kingston (ER, Doctor Who) and TV Favourite Sarah Hadland (Miranda) star in Admissions, the five star ‘Bold New Comedy’ (Sunday Express) The Sunday Times calls ‘Provocative. Outrageous. Entirely gripping’.

Written by Joshua Harmon (Bad Jews), Admissions has ‘the force of a bulldozer and the precision of a scalpel’ (Metro) and this ‘Sharp. Thoughtful’ (Evening Standard) new play will leave you questioning the status quo. What would you do?
Admissions will run from June 17 – June 22 at The Lowry. Tickets are available from Fever with an exclusive 50 per cent discount. Circle seats are priced at £16, get your tickets here.
