Blaring polka music from the open window; lights shining down on the people ready to dance in the street outside the theatre; extended laughing and camaraderie: South Camden Theatre Company (SCTC) uses many aspects of the neighborhood to spotlight its good works. SCTC is at it again with INDOOR PICNIC. Playwright Joseph M. Paprzycki used others’ memories and stories, iconic references, and his own fertile imagination to write an original play about Camden in the 1960s through 1980s—a time that was comfortable and accommodating but when racial bigotry hung over the hardworking men of the time. Commendations to Paprzycki for bringing this Camden story to local audiences, allowing them to judge its effectiveness and authenticity.
