LONG BRANCH – New Jersey Repertory Company is presenting on three consecutive Mondays John Biguenet’s Rising Water Trilogy, inspired by his personal experiences during Hurricane Katrina and his return to home after its catastrophic flooding and destruction.
The plays will be presented as part of NJ Rep’s reading series at 7 p.m. Sept. 23, Sept. 30 and Oct. 7 at NJ Repertory Company, 179 Broadway.
The reading of the three plays will complement the opening of Biguenet’s new play, Broomstick, which will run through Oct. 13 as part of a National New Play Network Rolling World Premiere.
Seating for the trilogy reading series is very limited. Seats must be reserved by contacting the NJ Rep Box Office at 732-229-3166. Admission is $10.
Biguenet’s experiences and observations of Hurricane Katrina should resonate with many residents of the Jersey Shore who experienced similar loss last October and are still struggling to cope with the destruction from Super Storm Sandy nearly a year later.
