Eureka Day
  • West End

'The perfect play for our age of disagreement.' New York Times

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&

'If consensus was easy, everyone would do it.'

In Jonathan Spector's timely and hysterical comedy, polite debate descends into ideological warfare, as a democratic utopia tears itself apart.

Starring Academy, Golden Globe and Emmy Award winner Helen Hunt (As Good As It Gets, The Sessions, Mad About You) and directed by Katy Rudd (Camp Siegfried, The Ocean at the End of the Lane), with further casting to be announced.

A co-production with Sonia Friedman Productions

Since you’re here…

… we have a small favour to ask. We don't want your money to support a hack's bar bill at Abattoir, but if you have a pound or two spare, we really encourage you to support a good cause. If this review has either helped you discover a gem or avoid a turkey, consider doing some good that will really make a difference.

You can donate to the charity of your choice, but if you're looking for inspiration, there are three charities we really like.

Mama Biashara
Kate Copstick’s charity, Mama Biashara, works with the poorest and most marginalised people in Kenya. They give grants to set up small, sustainable businesses that bring financial independence and security. That five quid you spend on a large glass of House White? They can save someone’s life with that. And the money for a pair of Air Jordans? Will take four women and their fifteen children away from a man who is raping them and into a new life with a moneymaking business for Mum and happiness for the kids.

Theatre MAD
The Make A Difference Trust fights HIV & AIDS one stage at a time. Their UK and International grant-making strategy is based on five criteria that raise awareness, educate, and provide care and support for the most vulnerable in society. A host of fundraising events, including Bucket Collections, Late Night Cabarets, West End Eurovision, West End Bares and A West End Christmas continue to raise funds for projects both in the UK and Sub-Saharan Africa.
