F THEORY - World Premiere in Broadway F THEORY - WORLD PREMIERE
New Jersey Repertory Company
8/17-9/24/2017
Meet Marianne and Ellie -- 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 all time, even across continents in their case. Or does it? What happens when you realize the friendship that's been central to your life for decades means something else entirely to the person on the other end? Written by and starring Megan Loughran and Alex Trow (with Pheonix Vaughn filling in as Marianne Sept. 15 - 17), directed by Ethan Heard, F THEORY gives center stage to friendship, a relationship so often sidelined in both art and life to family, romance, marriage, though it often proves stronger and truer than the rest.

Two best girlfriends move to New York and order lots of take out. One falls in love, gets her PhD, and writes a book. The other girl is also great, just give her time, plenty of time. Maybe a little more time? A delightful new comedy, F Theory, chronicles the adventures and misadventures of Ellie and Marianne, tossed together at 18 as college roommates. They share everything- the secret codes, the silliness, the dreams and fears, and tenacious loyalty through thick and thin. Funny, poignant, thought-provoking, F Theory follows their journey through young adulthood, midlife, and old age to a surprising resolution.
