Open: 09/08/04- Close: 09/14/04 The John Wayne Principle
A searing portrait of the insidious attractions of corporate life, "The John Wayne Principle" tells the story a cynical, anti-establishment trust-fund kid who is picked to succeed his father as CEO of a multinational corporation. Instead of turning down the post, as his ambitious, business-minded sister had expected, he decides to sign on for a year, sending the company's stock into a tailspin. His sister's attempts to undermine his tenure only serve to fuel his enthusiasm for the job, and, as their sibling rivalry takes on sexual-political overtones, one is left to wonder if this rebel riding rough-shod on the company wants to break or break in the system.

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.
