Photo Flash: NJ Rep Presents WOLF AT THE DOOR
New Jersey Repertory Company, located at 179 Broadway in Long Branch, is proud to present the National New Play Network rolling world premiere of Marisela Treviño Orta's Wolf at the Door from October 18 - November 18, 2018.
Inspired by Latino folklore, Wolf at the Door draws upon legend and mythology to tell an archetypal and magical story that navigates dangerous waters. It is about survival and the struggle to find the strength to achieve personal freedom by vanquishing a wolf in sheep's clothing.
Winter has fallen on northern Mexico and the three occupants of an isolated hacienda are trying to fight off the cold. Far from her family, Isadora, about to give birth to her first child, finds herself increasingly threatened by her once-charming husband, Septimo. Only her loyal, childhood nurse, Rocio, stands between her and Septimo's unpredictable outbursts of violence. One night an explosive incident leads to the discovery of Yolot, a young woman hiding in the barn. With his characteristic charm, Septimo insists that Yolot remain under his protection and that he will provide refuge not only from the cold, but from the pack of wolves, heard howling in the distance.
