Bill and Sherri are white, progressive and proud. Respectively the headmaster and dean of admissions of a New Hampshire boarding school, they’ve dedicated their 15-year tenure to diversifying the school’s mostly white population. But when their high-achieving son’s Ivy League dreams are crushed, the family’s reaction betrays a schism between their public values and their private aspirations. An incisively funny look at privilege, power, and the perils of whiteness. Directed by Carla Milarch. Admissions features Joe Bailey, Sarah Burcon, Diane Hill, Jeremy Kucharek, and Cynthia Szczesny. September 20 - October 13, 2019 Thursday, Friday, Saturdays: 8pm, Sundays: 2pm 734-635-8450
