ST. CROIX — The Caribbean Community Theatre continues its 34th season with “Sarah & Addie,” a collection of short Caribbean plays.

Written by the late Anton C. Teytaud in Crucian dialect, “Sarah & Addie” is a collage of entertaining vignettes centering on the island “market women” of the 1940s and 50s who were looked to as important sources of humorous commentary, philosophy and the daily wisdom of the times. On St. Croix, if you wanted to find out the latest gossip, you went to the market.

“Sarah & Addie” is directed by Eileen Bishop Des Jardins. Cast members include Lisa J. Charles, Amaris Chew, Jonelle Alexis Jackson and Lesa Walcott, with Jacob Hebert, Kelly Pugh, Irene Simon and Michael Baker as customers, locals and tourists.
