This production began performances on 6th September and closed on 31st October 2022.
The first hit of the autumn.
‘If consensus was easy, everyone would do it’
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…
In Jonathan Spector's timely and hysterical comedy, polite debate descends into ideological warfare, as a democratic utopia tears itself apart.
Cryingly funny. A hit.
This autumn, Sonia Friedman Productions and The Old Vic bring Jonathan Spector's multi-award-winning off-Broadway comedy to the London stage. Playing from 06 September – 31 October, Eureka Day stars Academy Award-winning Helen Hunt (As Good As It Gets, What Women Want) and is directed by Katy Rudd (Camp Siegfried, The Ocean at the End of the Lane), with further casting to be announced.
A needle-sharp comedy that packs a smart and timely punch.
