Centenary Stage Company’s NEXTStage Repertory presents Lanford Wilson’s "Book of Days"

(HACKETTSTOWN, NJ) -- Centenary Stage Company’s NEXTStage Repertory presents Lanford Wilson’s Book of Days February 10 through 14 in the Little Theatre located in the Seay Building of the Centenary University campus at 400 Jefferson Street, Hackettstown, NJ. When murder roars through a small Missouri town, Ruth Hoch begins her own quest to find truth and honesty amid small town jealousies, religion, greed and lies.  This tornado of a play propels you through its events like a page-turning mystery. 

Lanford Wilson is an American playwright whose plays are known for experimental staging, simultaneous character dialogue, and postponed character exposition. In 1980 Wilson won a Pulitzer Prize for his play Talley Folly (1979). Other plays include Balm in Gilead (1965), The Rimers of Eldritch (1967), The Great Nebula in Orion (1971), The Mound Builders (1975), and Angels Fall (1982). 

This production of Lanford Wilson’s Book of Days will be directed by Centenary Stage Company’s own Stephen Davis. Davis serves as CSC’s Director of Shakesperience, NJ and professor for the Centenary University Theatre Department. Assistant Directing Book of Days is Centenary Stage Company Intern Meaghan Wilson. This production features Centenary University students Megan Moran, James Brandes, Christina Polichetti, Connor McCrea, Amanda Ackerman, Kylah Wilson, Christopher Hara, Kaitlyn Holmes, Jamir Freeman, Cody Jackson, Serena Buchan, Jeremiah Caviston, Alexandra Koch, Amanda Tossman, Kai Vialva, and Christopher Rice.
