New Jersey Repertory Company, located at 179 Broadway in Long Branch, is proud to announce the World Premiere of The Realization of Emily Linder by Richard Strand, author of the Civil War drama Butler.

Everything may not always be as it appears in this comedic-drama about Emily, an eccentric, retired university professor, who has come to the “realization” that she knows the exact day that she will pass away. She gathers her two daughters to her side to inform them of her imminent demise and to give each explicit instructions and assignments to fulfill prior to her earthly departure. Emily, for the most part, is behind the wheel steering her own poignant journey in her life’s final mission, but an unexpected someone from her past emerges to divert her off course and places her in uncharted territory on the road to possible new discoveries.

Open: 04/17/15- Close: 05/09/15 True Believer
A new play about identity, radicalism, and the passion of youth by Asa Merritt.  A young journalist returns from the Arab Spring hungry to build a more just society at home. Yet after she fails to publish her writing and can no longer relate to her apathetic peers, despondency sets in. Insomnia--a domestic terrorist group--reverses that. By recruiting her to write their manifestos they give her the agency she craves. Soon she is embroiled in an attack against her own country. As Insomnia moves closer and closer to taking action, a romance with another woman in the group, and a powerful conscience, threaten her commitment to the cause. Which will win out--her passion for people or her passion for justice?
