Camden Repertory Theater: Child Support

Camden Repertory Theater: Child Support

Dec 9—10, 2023

ArtYard and Camden Repertory Theater are joining forces to present two performances of Desi Shelton’s ‘urgent, searing and wildly inventive’ new play Child Support at 7 PM Sat., Dec. 9 and 3 PM on Sun, Dec. 10.

A mother struggling to provide. A father trying to rise above his statistical odds. A daughter desperate to be loved. Child Support lays out the unspoken rules of a game in which everyone loses. The audience will find themselves immersed in the world of a single Black mother and her 17-year old daughter, uneasy contestants on the “Child Support Game Show.”

Urgent, searing and wildly inventive, Child Support by Desi P. Shelton uses humor and hypertheatricality to examine single parenthood and financial responsibility from the points of view of everyone impacted by a broken system.

ArtYard is thrilled to partner with Camden Repertory Theater to bring Desi Shelton’s newest play to Frenchtown.
