New Jersey Repertory Co. presents Memoirs of a Forgotten Man by D.W. Gregory, a new play receiving a rolling world premiere through the National New Play Network.
The story: 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. A haunting and suspenseful political thriller based on a true story.
