Monday, September 19, 2016 - New Jersey Repertory Company, located at 179 Broadway in Long Branch, is proud to announce the new comedy MAD LOVE by Marisa Smith, the Author of 'Saving Kitty'. Sloane Hudson, a wealthy, beautiful recent Ivy League graduate and product of the campus hook-up culture and frat basement pong tournaments, doesn't believe in love or marriage. She does, however, believe in babies and wants one soon so her tummy can bounce back and she can still wear a bikini. The problem is she needs a sperm donor who passes muster. Enter Brandon, who has all the right stats, but the wrong attitude. Brandon, meantime, has enough on his plate living with his brother Doug, who just fell in love with Katerina, the hooker from the Ukraine. Cabbage soup, a rare baseball card and a lizard named Pogo all play a part in this romantic comedy for cynical times.

Pramila Jayapal, a Washington State Senator and candidate for Congress, will lead a post-play discussion immediately following the Sunday, June 19, matinee performance of Sorry.

In an election season marked with so much anger and shouting, Sorry offers instead a "lovely . . . feeling of shared citizenship,' (New York Times) where one family, trying to make the right choice in their own difficult decision, still manage, with humor and grace, to talk to one another using their 'inside voices.' Pramila Jayapal's participation makes tangible this intimate, vital connection between the personal and the political, the local and the national.
