New Jersey Repertory Company (NJ Rep) will continue its 27 th Season with the world premiere of The Bookstore by Michael Walek, directed by William Carden . It will begin performances on July 11, with its opening night on July 13 , and run through August 4, 2024.

Enter a small independent bookstore in New York City, like the ones we all love to frequent and are rapidly dying out.  Carey, the owner, rolls up the grate, unlocks the front door, carries in boxes, turns on the heater, turns on the kettle, and turns on the lamps and her computer. And so her day begins.

"We're excited to present Michael Walek's The Bookstore as part of NJ Rep's 27th Season. This play captures the spirit of those cherished independent bookstores that are becoming rare gems in our fast-paced world. It's a heartfelt tribute to the joy of literature and community, and we believe it will resonate deeply with our audiences." — Suzanne Barabas, Artistic Director of NJ Rep
