New Jersey Repertory Company is set to open the world premiere of F Theory, running August 17-September 24 as the first production of the theater's 2017-18 season.

Directed by Ethan Heard, F Theory is a new comedy cowritten by and starring Megan Loughran and Alex Trow. The story is described as follows: "When we first meet them, Marianne (Trow) and Ellie (Loughran) are bright, charming college roommates prone to break out in spontaneous tap dance routines in the middle of study sessions. 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 time; even across several continents in their case. Or does it? What happens when you realize that the friendship you have valued on the merit of its fortitude through decades, means something else entirely to the person on the other end? F Theory gives center stage to friendship, a relationship often sidelined in both art and life to family, romance, and marriage, though it is often stronger than them all."

Also featured in the cast is Pheonix Vaughn, who will perform the role of Marianne September 16-17.
