A Thing of Beauty

“Every work of art is a political statement”

Memoirs of a Forgotten Man

Long before fake news was a trending topic, it was called propaganda. And in the Soviet Union, circa 1938, it was the grease that kept Stalin’s machinery of terror in motion.

Radium Girls

The original award-winning drama based on the true story. In 1926, radium was a miracle cure, Madame Curie an international celebrity, and luminous watches the latest rage—until the girls who painted them began to fall ill with a mysterious disease.

Salvation Road

Two guys. One rusted out Honda. Twenty-four hours to separate a girl from her guru. The road to Hell was never more fun.

The Other American

Long before fake news was a trending topic, it was called propaganda. And in the Soviet Union, circa 1938, it was the grease that kept Stalin’s machinery of terror in motion.

The Yellow Stocking Play

D.W. Gregory, author of Radium Girls and Salvation Road. The music and lyrics are by writing team Steven M. Alper & Sarah Knapp, whose musical version of Mark Harelik’s The Immigrant received two Drama Desk award nominations when it was produced off-Broadway.

Playwright Typewriter
As A Dramatist
I write plays that examine American culture—our obsessions with image and privilege, our fundamental sexism, implicit racism, and propensity to violence, and ultimately, our collective optimism. In my work, tragedy and comedy exist side by side because they exist that way in life. The play is funny until it isn’t—and at that point, the larger questions are revealed.

Start date: September 5, 2024
End date: September 29, 2024
Time: 7:00 pm
Location: New Jersey Repertory Co.

Paris 1952. After tangling over politics with an American tourist, a promising art student spirals into a mental breakdown that derails his life. Thirty years later he discovers why: The tourist was a CIA operative, and the student an unwitting participant in one of the darkest chapters of the Cold War. 

Based on a true story, The Other American by D.W. Gregory opens Sept. 5 at New Jersey Repertory Co. in Long Branch. This production marks the fourth collaboration between Gregory and the award-winning theatre.

Previously New Jersey Rep premiered Memoirs of a Forgotten Man, October 1962, and The Good Daughter.
