NJ Repertory Company to Present the World Premiere of F THEORY
New Jersey Repertory Company presents the world premiere of F Theory, a funny, poignant, thought-provoking play about the power and complexity of lifelong friendship. Co-written by and starring Megan Loughran and Alex Trow, and directed by Ethan Heard, F Theory runs from August 17 through September 24, 2017 at NJ Rep, 179 Broadway, Long Branch, NJ.
When we first meet them, Marianne (Trow) and Ellie (Loughran) are bright, charming college roommates prone to break out in spontaneous tap dance routines in the middle of study sessions. They come from very different backgrounds and are headed into very different futures-wealth, marriage, and anthropological adventures for one; family troubles, solo living, and a career as a musician for the other. But the bond they forged on meeting is that rare sort that transcends all circumstance and thrives across time; even across several continents in their case. Or does it? What happens when you realize that the friendship you have valued on the merit of its fortitude through decades, means something else entirely to the person on the other end? F Theory gives center stage to friendship, a relationship often sidelined in both art and life to family, romance, and marriage, though it is often stronger than them all.
Megan Loughran and Alex Trow are actors and writers based in New York City. They met at Yale University, from which they both graduated, as did director Ethan Heard. Also featured in the cast is Pheonix Vaughn, a regular at NJ Rep, who will be performing the role of Marianne, September 16 - 17.
Performances are Thursdays and Fridays at 8pm; Saturdays at 3pm and 8pm; and Sundays at 2pm beginning August 17. Tickets are $46 and are available at 732-229-3166 or online at njrep.org. Early bird discounts are available to select performances.
