the salvage company manifesto

As best we can say...

  1. We believe that things that have been wrecked can be salvaged. We see the artist as both creator and caretaker, and we choose to practice redemption in our daily work. We are gifted with the ability to make meaning, and we choose to give value to the stories untold and overlooked, that exist all around us.
  2. We believe that exposing ourselves to the stories of people on the margins increases our capacity to engage with our world. We strive to make this happen in theatrical events. This mission helps uncover the hidden and disassociated parts of ourselves. It is also our surest defense against becoming condescending assholes.
  3. We believe all creation requires embodiment: consumption, decomposition, reconstitution, and rebirth.
  4. We believe that the fundamental necessary condition for creation is love.
  5. We recognize that all human activities involve risk, and the mitigation of risk. We strive to define our risks in relation to achievement of the human spirit, rather than any monetary, numeric, or external standard.
  6. We demand authenticity from all our participants and contributors.
  7. We want to feel more deeply than we ever thought possible.
  8. We want to come into a more nuanced and more sound understanding of the issues in our world.
  9. We want to compete with Church, Government, and Your Job for a share of your soul’s allegiance because we believe we are returning to you a glimpse of your human nature as independent, abundant and sacrosanct.
  10. We want to worship something worthy.

A New Play by Dean Poynor

A mystery. A tragedy. A husband and wife tangled in grief. Join the circle of chairs in this immersive new theatre production and witness a couple through a series of support group meetings for parents in the aftermath of a school shooting. 

Following a workshop production in NYC last summer, The Salvage Company is proud to bring this new play to life in our most intimate production yet.

The Salvage Company develops and produces theatre events that tell stories of the outcast, overlooked, and broken.

Our motto "Stories Untold" speaks to our choice of content, as well as our style. We like work that engages the audience in the storytelling in unconventional ways. And our approach to rehearsal, staging, and production tries to constantly challenge our preconceived notions of what might happen next. Through it all, we believe that listening is essential to living. And dwelling together is an act of creativity and grace. 

Founded in 2010 by wife-and-husband collaborators Monica Wyche and Dean Poynor, Sal Co. has produced shows in the United States and Australia, gaining a niche following with some of the brightest and boldest theatre voices. We love working with our friends and shining a light on their amazing talents. We are always looking for new ideas and new stories, and we'd love to stay in touch.
