Great acting, Funny, Delightful, Clever

See it if you're looking for a clever, funny play about vaccine mandates. Good performances all around.

Don't see it if you prefer plays with lots of actions. The entire play takes place in a class room and the action is all in the dialogues.

Time Out London
September 24th, 2022

"‘Eureka Day’ is just lacking a bit of the heft and muscle it needs to really storm this stage."

The London Evening Standard
September 26th, 2022

"This remains a needle-sharp comedy that packs a smart and timely punch."

The Telegraph (UK)
September 24th, 2022

" 'Eureka Day' is a bracing corrective to the idea that you can only discuss serious issues with a straight face."

London Theatre
September 29th, 2022
