CASTING YOUNG MAN

Admissions by Joshua Harmon

Auditions 11/1 & 11/2

“Shockingly insightful and outrageously hilarious satire about class, race and the increasingly unbridgeable American cultural divide.”-St. Louis Post-Dispatch

Sherri Rosen-Mason is head of the admissions department at a New England prep school, fighting to diversify the student body. Alongside her husband, the school’s headmaster, they’ve largely succeeded in bringing a stodgy institution into the twenty-first century. But when their only son sets his sights on an Ivy League university, personal ambition collides with progressive values, with convulsive results. A no-holds-barred look at privilege, power, and the perils of hypocrisy.

Casting: Charlie Mason is a 17-year-old senior at Hillcrest who goes off on a monumental rant when he doesn’t get into his dream school, Yale, especially as his best friend Perry who has lower SAT scores and fewer AP courses has. Perry is Black. A terrific part for a compelling, charismatic and sympathetic young man which runs the emotional gamut from confession to repentance and growth.
