Alex Kingston returns to the West End in Admissions

Eleni Cashell

By Eleni Cashell Published 11 January 2019

We love seeing our favourite faces return to the West End, and so we’re very pleased to hear that Alex Kingston is making her return to the West End.

Alex, known for her star roles in hit shows such as ER and Doctor Who, will be starring in the award-winning comedy, Admissions, at the Trafalgar Studios.

No stranger to Theatreland, Alex has previously trodden the boards in Macbeth opposite Kenneth Branagh, and One Flew Over The Cuckoos Nest with Christian Slater. She has also done frequent work with the Royal Shakespeare Company.

Admissions is the story of Sherri (played by Alex), the Head of Admissions at a private school. Sherri is fighting to diversify student intake at her school and wants everyone to know about her cause. But when her son is deferred from his dream university, but his best friend – who ‘ticks more boxes’ – is accepted, her personal life and ambition clash with her progressive values.

Piercing and provocative, Admissions is 90 minutes long, and the debate will take you through the night.

Transferring from New York following a successful run there, (which included winning the Drama Desk and Outer Critics Circle Awards for Best Play), the show is written by Joshua Harmon, who also wrote the hit show Bad Jews.

Admissions will play for a limited season between 28 February till 25 May, before embarking on a UK tour. The Admissions tour will perform at the Richmond Theatre (w/c 27 May 2019), the Cambridge Arts Theatre (w/c 3 June), the Malvern Festival Theatre (w/c 10 June 2019) and the Lyric Theatre at The Lowry in Salford (w/c 17 June 2019).

Further casting will be announced soon too, so watch this space!

There is nothing that you need to do if your performance has been cancelled, but we do ask for your patience.
