2018 Season at NJ Rep Opens with “The Calling” + Monday Night Readings

Warm up your winter with a heart-pounding, mind-bending psychological thriller, peppered with comic relief and served up by award-winning playwright Joel Stone and directed by Evan Bergman.

In an empty church following Mrs. Callahan's funeral, a man of faith (Ames Adamson) and a burned-out ICU nurse (Jared Michael Delaney) wage a battle of wits and deep convictions about life and death, conscience and faith, that culminates in a shocking resolution. Commissioned by NJPAC's Stage Exchange in Association with NJTA and NJRep. (Left: Ames Adamson, Jared Michael Delaney)

This play‎ tells the true story of The White Rose and Sophie Scholl, a German college student who led the only act of public resistance to the Nazis during the Second World War. The play is not about the Holocaust, but examines the role that ordinary Germans played in the rise of Hitler. At a time when fascism is resurgent in Europe and across the world, "We Will Not Be Silent" examines the moral strength and clarity that led a group of German students to risk their lives for a righteous, but hopeless, cause.

Little Treasons
by Jack Canfora

ADMISSION: Reservations not accepted, first come, first served. Readings are followed by a discussion.

Jessie and Jason are considering the prospect of moving in together and taking their relationship to another level, even though Jessie's ex-husband Stephen recently killed himself. That is, until Nicole--Stephen's first wife--shows up at their door and makes some serious claims against Jessie.
