River Rep Theater "WE"

River Rep Theatre presents the World premiere of Yevgeny Zamyatin’s WE, opening Friday, July 28 at 7pm, with additional performances on Saturday, July 29 at 7pm, and Sunday, July 30 at 2pm.

All tickets are $30

Based on the banned book that inspired 1984, and hailed by Margaret Atwood (The Handmaid's Tale) as “one of the most important dystopias of the twentieth century”, Yevgeny Zamyatin’s "We" transports us to the futuristic totalitarian society of OneState, ruled over by the all-powerful “Benefactor.” A visionary masterpiece of wit and black humor, WE is also a powerful, exciting, and vivid work of science fiction, whose message feels strikingly relevant.

Adapted and directed by River Rep’s Christopher Peditto, with an immersive production design, and transportive electronic soundtrack, WE’s cast includes: Arthur Aulisi, Jim Fyfe, Lisa Gonsalves, Tina Gordon, Oliver King, Ivie Rein, Peter Sansbury, Sophie Smith, Will Thames, Crystal Tweed, Laura Velez, Juliet Wolfe and Pearl Zayas.

A co-production between River Rep and Delaware Valley Opera. This project is made possible with funds from the Statewide Community Regrant Program, a program of the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of the Office of the Governor and the New York State Legislature and administered by Delaware Valley Arts Alliance. Additional support comes from River Rep's Classroom Partnership Program with the Homestead School.
