South Camden Theatre Company Announces 2015–16 Season

On the slate are a lesser-known Tennessee Williams play, John Guare’s ‘House of Blue Leaves,’ a tribute to U.S. war veterans and the popular plane-crash docutheatre piece ‘Charlie Victor Romeo.’

CAMDEN, N.J.: The South Camden Theatre Company (SCTC) has announced its 2015–16 season. It will feature works by local playwrights, as well as by John Guare and Tennessee Williams.

Kicking off the season will be Charlie Victor Romeo (Oct. 16–31). This Drama Desk award winner, written by Robert Berger, Patrick Daniels, Irving Gregory, is based on transcripts from six actual aviation accidents recorded in the various flights’ black box voice recorders. Joseph M. Paprzycki directs.

The first show of 2016 will be Guare’s The House of Blue Leaves (Jan. 15–31, 2016), to be directed by Susan Jami Paschkes. The show, written in 1971, is set in 1960s Sunnyside Queens, N.Y. during Pope Paul VI’s visit to New York.

SCTC will honor American veterans with Shadows of War—A One Act Play Festival (March 18–20, 2016). The festival will include four world premieres of one-act plays from four regional playwrights. Submissions from regional Dramatist Guild members are currently being considered.

Closing out the season will be Tennessee Williams’s A Lovely Sunday for Creve Couer (April 29-May 15, 2016). Connie Norwood directs one of Williams’s less well-known shows about four women in 1930s St. Louis who are searching for independence and identity.

The South Camden Theatre Company stages seldom-seen classic plays and original works as the resident theatre company at Waterfront South Theatre.
