‘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.
