Celebrating Female Playwrights —

Our final production of our 13TH Season opens November 2





Crumbs From The Table Of Joy

“…a complex, thought-provoking play…” — Chicago Sun Times.

By Playwright, Lynn Nottage

Recently widowed Godfrey, and his daughters Ernestine and Ermina, move from Florida to Brooklyn for a better life. Not knowing how to parent, Godfrey turns to religion, and especially to Father Divine, for answers. The girls absorb their new surroundings, but not necessarily religion. Lily, Godfrey’s sister-in-law, shows up from Harlem, having promised her sister that if anything ever happened, she’d look out for the girls. Lily, while fascinating to her nieces, stands for everything Godfrey dislikes: communism, sexual freedom and the fight against racial discrimination.

The Areas Hottest Off-Broadway Theatre

The Waterfront South Theatre is situated just a block south of Broadway and Ferry Avenues in the Waterfront South neighborhood of Camden, this gorgeous state-of-the-art theater was designed to be reminiscent of Walt’s Cafe, the corner bar, that once stood on this corner.

Today, 96 seats and thousands of theatre patrons a year have replaced the bar stools and shipyard workers that at one time called this corner of Camden “home”.
