Our Mission

SRTC’s mission is to bring the true Southern experience through live theatre, "one hush puppy at a time"—from the perspectives of the producers—Susan Jackson, the daughter of a Southern minister and a former Tar Heel, and Diana Brown. Diana was raised by a daughter of Texas and a son of Oklahoma and was baptized in a river at sunset. Our main characters are strong, irrepressible women, facing sudden challenges. (General Sherman, death of a parent, infidelity, etc.) All of the characters in writer, co-producer Jackson’s plays are related by blood or marriage and this family tree is the foundation of our producing calendar, --beginning with HEATHEN, which takes place during the Civil War (a slave and the plantation master fight off General Sherman) and continues to the present day.

We’re drawn to work that emphasizes how underneath it all, we’re the same, human.  Join us for some “Comfort Food Entertainment”. We sure hope ya’ll come see, you’re in for a damn good time!”

“Under the direction of Wesley Cayabyab, the two recognizable and credible characters are comfortable in their own skin...”
-Roger Catlin, The Washington Post
“Diana Brown, as Red, provides what is arguably the best performance at the FRINGE OF MARIN.”
