Enjoy Some 'Simple Sundries' at Salvage Vangaurd Theater

Mar 11, 2015

The folks at Glass Half Full Theatre like to combine elements in their show. The combination of live performance and puppetry is a trademark of Glass Half Full, and they also tend to mix a little social commentary in with their comedy.

The new work 'Simple Sundries' uses all those elements. Using an earlier short play about a woman and a pigeon as their basis, writers Caroline Wreck and Parker Dority crafted a full-length show that includes puppetry and physical comedy and also has something to say about the changing face of Austin's East Side.

The woman is a shop owner who has opened a new store in East Austin with the best of intentions. The pigeon character has evolved into a monk parakeet whose home has been taken over by the new store but who has no intention of going quietly.

See 'Simple Sundries' through March 14 at Salvage Vanguard Theater.
