Out of 37,451 applicants to Eliot University, Angela stands out – but not for the right reasons. An ambiguous event in her past threatens to overshadow her talent, her potential and her future prospects. Can she overcome the prejudices of those judging her application, or is she already tainted beyond redemption?

Crackling with razor-sharp dialogue, Amy Ng's play Acceptance asks whether we can ever escape our past, and investigates the destructive side of our search for acceptance. It premiered at Hampstead Theatre Downstairs, London, in 2018.

‘We’re supposed to be assessing their potential as college students, not conducting a quasi-criminal investigation.’

Press Quotes
