Synopsis: "I keep trying to find something a bit exotic in my family tree. Best I could do was a great-grandma who looks a bit tanned in the old photos."

US election night 2008. A smart inner-London 'village'. For white ex-lawyer Natasha, adoptive mother to two Ethiopian children, tonight is the ideal opportunity to get to know the small handful of other 'mothers of children of color' at their smart private school. But as the Obamatinis start to flow, the middle-class veneer begins to crack and Natasha's carefully planned social occasion quickly unravels. Lifting the lid on a stew of racial tensions and social embarrassments, this is a hilarious, provocative and brilliantly insightful look at the new 'Beige Britain'.

"Sarah Rutherford’s play turns out to be a splendidly funny and often downright raucous comedy - a kind of Abigail’s Party for the metropolitan, multicultural 21st century." - Telegraph

"Very funny, provocative and well-informed." - Independent

"Rutherford’s written the London equivalent of Clybourne Park... Fiercely funny stuff." - Time Out (London)

About the Author: Sarah Rutherford has a first-class degree in English from Oxford University, and completed a PhD on Black Farce in Jacobean and 1960s Theatre alongside a career as an arts journalist and broadcaster. She then trained as an actor at Guildford School of Acting and worked in television and theatre for twelve years before becoming a playwright. Sarah's play What You Do To People was showcased at the Hampstead Theatre and workshopped by Park Theatre’s Jez Bond. Adult Supervision premieres at Park in October 2013, having received a staged reading (under the title Tonight Is Your Answer) at Theatre Royal Stratford East, starring Tara Fitzgerald. Sarah has also written a play specially for Park called Allah in Neon, inspired by selected real life stories of local people. Her monologue La Barbe has been performed at the Salon Collective's Echo Chamber and at the Equal Writes event, and her writing was recently shortlisted for the Adrienne Benham Award.
