Eureka Day


STARTS APR 13, 2018

By Jonathan Spector  |   Directed By Josh Costello

Winner of the 2018 Rella Lossy Award.

At forward-thinking Eureka Day School, all decisions are made by consensus and everyone’s opinion is valued. But when a crisis puts their children in danger, it turns out that Eureka Day parents have different definitions of safety. The debate over vaccinations hits home in this comedy of liberal manners, as the school community confronts the central question of our era: how do you find consensus when you can’t agree on the facts? Eureka Day is the first commission from Aurora’s Originate+Generate program, by local playwright and two-time Aurora Global Age Project winner Jonathan Spector. Aurora is proud to offer the world premiere of an incisive new play that is funny, poignant, and oh-so-Berkeley.

Eureka Day runs two hours, with one intermission.
