(LONG BRANCH, NJ) -- New Jersey Repertory Company presents the National New Play Network Rolling world premiere of Memoirs of a Forgotten Man by D.W. Gregory from August 15-September 15, 2019. A Soviet journalist with the gift of total recall. A psychologist seeking to rehabilitate herself. A government censor with a secret past. Their fates become entwined as victims and collaborators in Stalin’s campaign to rewrite public memory.
Long before fake news was a trending topic, it was called propaganda. And in the Soviet Union, it was the grease that kept Stalin’s machinery of terror in motion. A haunting and political thriller based on a true story.
Directed by James Glossman, the play stars Amie Bermowitz, Steve Brady, Andrea Gallo, and Benjamin Satchel. Memoirs of a Forgotten Man runs August 15 - September 15, 2019. Previews are Thursday and Friday, August 15 and 16 at 8:00pm, and Saturday, August 17 at 3:00pm. A special talk-back with the playwright and director will be held after the first preview, Thursday, August 15. Opening night with reception is Saturday, August 17 at 8:00 pm.
