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

We are committed to investing ourselves fully at all phases of development - from inception through production and beyond - in order to produce work greater than what any one person can achieve on their own. Our organization is loosely structured and flexible in make-up in order to respond to the particular needs of each project. We involve theatre and performance artists from many disciplines, and we seek to make new connections and create opportunities for our members.

Our goal is to help artists take risks.
