At Eureka Day School in Berkeley, all decisions are made by consensus, diversity and inclusion are valued, and vaccinations are a personal matter. When a mumps outbreak hits the school, it turns out that not everyone in the community has the same definition of social justice. Now the board of directors must confront the central question: how do you find consensus when you can’t agree on the facts? A comedy for our moment!
The New York Times Feature: Can a Play About Vaccines Be a Laughing Matter?
Lead Underwriter: Marvin F. Weissberg

"Eureka Day is...one of the funniest plays to open this year"
"Jonathan Spector’s lively portrait of a debate over mandatory vaccinations is the perfect play for our age of disagreement."
"Uproarious! Jonathan Spector's play is so crisply defined that you might have to periodically remind yourself that you haven't already met these characters in real life..."
—San Francisco Chronicle
"So brilliantly yoked to the current American moment... that it makes you want to jump out of your skin... Electrically funny."
