LONG BRANCH – New Jersey Repertory Company will present from Jan. 16 through Feb. 16 the world premiere of “Admit One,” a new comedy by Wendy Yondorf .
The play centers around the familiar parental move into hysteria when it comes time to getting their children into the best schools. Howard Everett is no exception, but he has a leg up being one of the wealthiest donors to the elite Giddings University, a hallowed gateway that assures access to the American Dream. What he does not anticipate, however, is that he is about to meet the admissions officer from hell with her own agenda and rules. With his child’s entire future at stake, just how far will a father go?
Performances are 8 p.m. Thursdays and Fridays; 3 and 8 p.m. Saturdays; and 2 p.m. Sundays
Special reduced price previews are slated for 2 and 8 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 16 and Friday, Jan. 17, and 3 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 18. The opening night performance will be followed by a reception at 8 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 18.
