“Daphne’s Dive” by Quiara Alegria Hudes is directed by Joel Guerrero

South Camden Theatre Company stages this regional premiere drama from Quiara Alegria Hudes. She tracks the patrons of a Philadelphia watering hole, (her hometown and the setting for her Pulitzer Prize-winning play Water by the Spoonful produced by SCTC in 2016), through a period of 17 years. 

In lieu of a Washington Heights bodega from “In The Heights”. Hudes shows us the Philadelphia bar that gives its name to “Daphne’s Dive”. As careers progress, children grow, and relationships blossom and decay, we watch as this liquor-soaked microcosm comes into focus more clearly than any of the individuals who pass through it. Just as the church is more than a collection of pews and a pulpit, Hudes, has made Daphne’s Dive more than the sum of its parts. This warm-spirited play is the kind of place where everybody knows your name, to borrow from a sitcom song. The folks who gather at Daphne’s, however, are markedly different from the Bostonians who cracked wise during a certain long-running show set in a neighborhood pub.

THIS SHOW WILL BE PERFORMED “LIVE” ON-STAGE AT THE WATERFRONT SOUTH THEATRE FROM SEPTEMBER 10-26, 2021

Friday & Saturday evenings at 8:00 pm | Sunday matinées at 2:00 pm.

Directed by actor/director Damien J. Wallace

“The Brothers Size” by Tarell Alvin McCraney is directed by Damien J. Wallace

Our final production for our 2021 season will be Tarell Alvin McCraney’s amazing work, “The Brothers Size”. This is considered the greatest piece of writing by an American playwright under 30 in a generation or more. With his original and singular voice, McCraney crafts an intense story about the unbreakable bond between brothers, a bond that is equal parts love and despair. 

“The prison industrial complex as we know it…destroys families—and changes lives forever.” —Tarell Alvin McCraney, Playwright

THIS SHOW WILL BE PERFORMED “LIVE” ON-STAGE AT THE WATERFRONT SOUTH THEATRE FROM OCTOBER 29 – NOVEMBER 14, 2021

Friday & Saturday evenings at 8:00 pm | Sunday matinées at 2:00 pm.

The Areas Hottest Off-Broadway Theatre

The Waterfront South Theatre, located just a block west of Broadway and Ferry Avenues in the historic Waterfront South neighborhood of Camden, is the first theatre built in Camden, New Jersey in more than 100 years. This gorgeous state-of-the-art theater was designed to be reminiscent of Walt’s Cafe, the bar, that once stood on this corner until 1967. Thanks to the Heart of Camden, The Domenica Foundation, Ignarri Lummis Architects, and others, this grand space has been home to South Camden Theatre Company since the fall of 2010.

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”.
