Southern Railroad Theatre Company presents:
as part of the 11th Annual Capital Fringe Festival
Southern Railroad Theatre Company makes their DC debut with this world premiere production.
Meet Red and Marion, as different as they can be – “People are worse than anybody!” – Marion’s take on the world after a few martinis collides with Red’s pragmatism and profanity: “You just gotta laugh, goddamn it!” Will they find Southern comfort as they story down the railroad tracks of life? Southern Railroad Theatre Company makes their Capital Fringe debut with DEATH BY NOT LOUD!
Directed by Wesley Cayabyab, Co-Producers Diana Brown and Susan Jackson will represent the Southern Railroad Theatre Company at the festival in Susan Jackson’s two-handed contemporary Southern comedy.

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 liberal 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.
Jackson’s play HEATHEN was presented in the New Play Lab at the 2016 William Inge Festival. Southern Railroad works to present new plays at theatre festivals nationwide. In 2013, we were invited to represent in New York City in Altruistic Theatre Company’s Bare Knuckle Theatre Fest, in 2014, we were invited to participate in the Eugene O’Neill Foundation’s Eugene O’ Neill Festival. Then in 2015 we were invited back to New York City for the Midtown International Theatre Festival’s Midwinter Madness Festival.
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!”For more about Southern Railroad Theatre Company, please visit our website
