Eureka Day Information

Helen Hunt stars in the London premiere of Eureka Day at the Old Vic in autumn 2022. The timely vaccination satire focuses on a committee who can't decide on stringent rules in the midst of a public health scare. Eureka Day tickets are available on London Theatre now.

The Eureka Day play follows the fictional events at Eureka Day school in Berkeley, California. The school’s pretty flexible on who is allowed to attend; welcoming every child is met with applause and high praise from parents in the local community. So much so, the school’s executive committee pride themselves on making future decisions for the entire school body.

When issues arise though, it’s difficult for the executive committee members to agree. When the mumps begins to spread through the school, board members disagree on preserving a culture of inclusivity. With the committee split in half and plenty of heated debate, will the committee reach a consensus on making vaccinations mandatory? Or will their days of tolerance and togetherness be long gone?

While a play about vaccinations may be even more timely now, thanks to the Coronavirus pandemic, Eureka Day had audiences talking about jabs from 2018.
In a Eureka Day review from Time Out, they said: “Spector and the expert cast extract comic gold from the little tugs-of-war for control among the members of the committee.” An all-star international cast are set to do the same in London Eureka Day performances: Helen Hunt from Mad About You, Susan Kelechi Watson from This Is Us and Mark McKinney from Superstore.

Eureka Day tickets are available now. Book your Eureka Day tickets on London Theatre today.
