South Camden Theatre Company Opens its Ninth Season with Regional Premiere of KINGDOM OF EARTH by Tennessee Williams
KINGDOM OF EARTH is a Southern Gothic play by Tennessee Williams that is set in 1960 during a storm ravaged night on the Mississippi River as a man and his new bride return to his ancestral home to battle his half-brother for control of the estate. Also titled THE SEVEN DESCENTS OF MYRTLE this rarely produced play from an American master playwright confronts race and sexuality against the backdrop of Southern mythology.
Producing Artistic Director Joseph M. Paprzycki states, "KINGDOM OF EARTH marks the fifth time South Camden Theatre Company has produced a work by Williams as he is a key playwright for our company. I was inspired to bring this rarely produced play to our audience after seeing an amazing production by Abrahamse-Meyers Productions a Cape Town, South African company at last year's Provincetown Tennessee Williams Festival."
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. Tickets are available for purchase for $20 online at http://www.southcamdentheatre.org, by calling 1-866-811-4111 or at the door. This production is recommended for mature audiences.
