The world premiere of Joe Iconis’ Love in Hate Nation will open at Two River Theatre November 15 after beginning performances November 9. The production is scheduled to run through December 1 in Red Bank, New Jersey.
The 60’s rock n’ roll romance tells the story of young people fighting against a system that fails to adapt to a rapidly-changing America while using classic “bad girl” tropes from movies as inspiration.
