NJ Rep Announces Casting for World Premiere of Struck
Sandy Rustin's new play opens this summer at the Long Branch theater.
The play is described as "a serious comedy about a (possibly) cosmic event." It follows Vera Resnick, who, after being struck by a bike while crossing an East Village intersection, feels an eerie, outer-body connection to the college-aged student responsible for the collision.
Directed by Don Stephenson, the cast features Jenny Bacon, Adam Bradley, Susan Maris, Ben Puvalowski, and Matthew Shepard. The production team also includes Jessica Parks (set design and props), Brian Snyder (technical director,) Jill Nagle (lighting design), Merek Royce Press (sound design), Patricia E. Doherty (costume design), and Jennifer Tardibuono (stage manager).
Performances begin June 30 in advance of a July 2 opening and will run through July 31.
