The South Camden Theatre Company, a nonprofit professional theatre organization located in Camden, New Jersey announces its ninth season titled "Everything's Relative" featuring works written by Tennessee Williams, Sam Sheppard, Joseph M. Paprzycki and Albert Innaurato.
Opening the ninth season October 11 - 27 is KINGDOM OF EARTH directed by Connie Norwood. This rarely produced 'Southern Gothic' play by Tennessee Williams takes us to a night in 1960 in Mississippi as a storm rages, and the nearby levee is about to break. Two half-brothers from two very different mothers and a new bride just arrived from Memphis battle for control of their common home. Williams's seldom seen play pits black against white, man against woman and everyone against the power of the Mississippi.
Starting January 10 - 26, 2014 is the World Premiere of EXPRESS TRACKS written by founder and producing artistic director Joseph M. Paprzycki and director to be announced. The play is set on a New Jersey RIVER Line train trip from Camden to Trenton and brings revelations of secrets and questions as the train breaks down and the heat and tension build between Camden residents with disturbing pasts and a stranger who may or may not be who he claims to be.
GEMINI written by Philadelphia native Albert Innaurato and directed by Ray Croce comes to stage February 28 - March 3, 2014. Set in the backyard of a South Philadelphia neighborhood early in the summer of 1973, the dramatic comedy focuses on the 21st birthday celebration of Harvard student Francis Geminiani as the family and neighborhood erupt as secret crushes and identities emerge in this long running Broadway hit.
The season will close with Sam Shepard's TRUE WEST, directed by directed by Christopher 'Jumbo' Schimpf and running April 25 - May 11, 2014. The play tells a story of the sibling rivalry between two estranged brothers who have now reconnected in their mother's home.
Producing Artistic Director Joseph M. Paprzycki states, "Our ninth season will focus on all types of family dynamics, be it between brothers, or sons and fathers, or modern relationships that form self-perceived family bonds in four plays that will shock and amuse you but, ultimately, make you think."
All performances will be held Friday and Saturday evenings at 8 p.m. and Sunday afternoons at 2:00 p.m. at the 96-seat Waterfront South Theatre located at 400 Jasper Street in Camden, New Jersey.
