New Jersey Repertory Company, located at 179 Broadway in Long Branch is proud to present the National New Play Network Rolling World Premiere of Allison Gregory’s Wild Horses.

Set in a Tastee-Freeze-turned karaoke bar in Anywhere, U.S.A. in 1996, the one-woman play is directed by SuzAnne Barabas, NJ Rep’s Artistic Director, and stars Estelle Bajou, who appeared last season in The Jag.  Wild Horses is a coming-of-age story about a time when anything was possible, when the world was full of promise, young love was still a fantasy, and a group of 13 year-olds who recognize injustice can throw caution to the wind and take the initiative to act upon it. A savagely-funny play about a summer that changed an adolescent girl forever, told by her grown-up self. The pathos and hubris of her teenage years, the struggle for identity, independence, and authenticity, and the desire to find one’s place in a complicated world — all come rushing at us as she takes us on the ride of her life.

Playwright, Allison Gregory’s plays have been produced throughout the country and have been nominated for multiple awards. Wild Horses is her second NNPN Rolling World Premiere. Her plays are published by Playscripts, Smith & Krauss, Dramatic Publishing, and Rain City Press.  Theaters participating in the RWP of Wild Horses include Contemporary American Theater Festival (Shepherdstown, WV), CenterStage Theater at the JCC (Rochester, NJ) The VORTEX (Austin, TX).

Now thru March 25, 2018.  For tickets visit njrep.org or call 732-229-3166.
