Next at NJ REP: World Premiere of MULTIPLE FAMILY DWELLING
New Jersey Repertory Company, located at 179 Broadway in Long Branch,has nounce the World Premiere of MULTIPLE FAMILY DWELLING by James Hindman. Things are not always what they seem. James and Kelly, a young married couple, seem to have it made. They have finally purchased their dream house with all the money that they’ve carefully saved, and James is confident that it will be a great investment for the future. He is convinced that the neighborhood is in transition and that they will reap the benefits of the coming gentrification, and all they need to do is hunker down and live for a brief while in the shadow of the drug den across the street.
They may also need to make some temporary accommodations by taking a carefully chosen designated path to school with their young daughter so as to avoid the gauntlet of neighborhood delinquents. Adding further to their good fortune, they will be able to rent the upstairs apartment to their childhood friend, Tia, and her fiancé Stuart, with whom they will build their new lives together. Things start to unravel, however, when long-buried secrets are unearthed, and like an impending car-wreck in slow motion, deep betrayals and deceits are revealed as the past and present collide. No one is left unscathed, and no one is innocent.
