Salvage Vanguard Theater 2016 - 2017 Season: Create. Collaborate. Advocate. 

"The energy cultivated, created, and fed inside the walls of the Salvage Vanguard is not confined to a building. It does not end because the artists move. The commitment to risk taking art, community forward thinking, and civic engagement will continue to grow. We are excited for the year ahead."  -Jenny Larson, artistic director

GUEST BY COURTESY goes to Brooklyn!

GUEST BY COURTESY is an original performance developed by Jenny Larson – artistic director of Salvage Vanguard Theater – and Hannah Kenah – company member, performer, and writer for the Rude Mechs. Original music composed by Graham Reynolds, who will perform live July 22nd and 23rd.

GUEST BY COURTESY portrays the mangled story of a pair of cousins waging their bizarre relationship over the course of a failing afternoon tea. Using high physicality, sharp language, and sheer vulgarity, the show plumbs the comedic depths of duration and desperation. 

GUEST BY COURTESY has, thus far, delighted audiences in Texas and in Eastern Europe. We are now adding Brooklyn to that esteemed list. As part of Brooklyn Yards AUSTIN EXCHANGE, GUEST BY COURTESY will run in rep with Diana Small’s MAD AND A GOAT in an East Bed-Stuy living room.

July 22- 25 7:30pm / July 27- 30 7:30pm / Graham Reynolds plays live July 22 and 23
