World Premiere of ‘F Theory’ at NJ Rep

F2 (1)

World Premiere August 17 - September 24

New Jersey Repertory Company presents the world premiere of F Theory, a funny, poignant, and uniquely thought-provoking play about the power and complexity of lifelong friendship. Co-written by and starring Megan Loughran and Alex Trow, and directed by Ethan Heard, F Theory runs from August 17 through September 24, 2017 at NJ Rep, 179 Broadway, Long Branch, NJ.

Marianne and Ellie are bright, charming college roommates prone to break out in spontaneous tap dance routines in the middle of study sessions, when we first meet them. They come from very different backgrounds and are headed into very different futures—wealth, marriage, and anthropological adventures for one; family troubles, solo living, and a career as a musician for the other. But the bond they forged on meeting is that rare sort that transcends all circumstance and thrives across all time; even across several continents in their case. Or does it? What happens when you realize the friendship you have valued on the merit of its fortitude through everything for decades means something else entirely to the person on the other end? F Theory gives center stage to friendship, a relationship so often sidelined in both art and life to family, romance, marriage, though it is often stronger than them all.

Megan Loughran and Alex Trow are actors and writers based in New York City. They met at Yale University, from which they both graduated, as did director Ethan Heard. Also featured in the cast is Pheonix Vaughn, a regular at NJ Rep, who will be performing the role of "Marianne", September 15 – 17.
