‘The Wreck of the Spanish Armada’ Now Playing at the Cape May Airport

“The Wreck of the Spanish Armada,” a critically acclaimed play by award winning playwright Bill Sterritt, is now performing at the Cape May County Airport.

The play was the talk of the 2015 New York Fringe Festival, where it was acclaimed as “rapturous” and “a journey that the heart can barely endure.” It examines a rekindled romance in Paris (after 30 years), between a female physician (poised to address an international conference), and a modern day Robin Hood, who leads African pirates who hijack oil tankers. The current production has been hailed as “smart,” “funny” and “mesmerizing.”

“The Wreck of the Spanish Armada” performs at 8 p.m. Monday through Thursday until Labor Day weekend at the Cape May County Airport, right next to the Flight Deck Diner. From Labor Day weekend until mid-October, the show will run Friday and Saturday at 8 p.m. and Sunday at 2 p.m. Tickets are $20 for one, and $25 for two ($12.50 apiece). Information and reservations can be made by calling (323) 793-2153 or emailing aerodromenj@aol.com. The theatre has plush seating, is air conditioned and has plentiful free parking.
