CIVILIZATION (All You Can Eat) by Jason Grote
Salvage Vanguard Theater presents

By Jason Grote

February 16th- March 3rd
2803 E Manor Rd
Salvage Vanguard Theater
Tickets $15
Thursdays are Pay-What-You-Can

You can have a life that means something. Ignore the rage. Fight the desperation. Forget the existential fear and rise up. Embrace the violence. Spout bullshit. Masturbate too much. Get rich and famous. Star in your own reality show. Just stop wallowing in the muck and get a fucking job. Be more than you are and commit to staying alive. CIVILIZATION (all you can eat).

Set against the 2008 Obama campaign, this dark comedy explores the lives of seven city dwellers looking for more. A frustrated filmmaker, a suicidal comic, a career waitress, an amateur porn star, a failed academic, a fame-hungry actress, and a feral factory hog all pass under the gaze of an indifferent universe.

Originally commissioned by OBIE award-wining Clubbed Thumb, CIVILIZATION (all you can eat) was produced as part of Summerworks 2011 and is simultaneously premiering in Washington, DC at the Woolly Mammoth Theatre Company and Austin, TX at Salvage Vanguard. The playwright, Jason Grote, saw national success with his play 1001, and his play Hamilton Township had its world premiere at Salvage Vanguard in 2008.

February 17th after party sponsored by Deep Eddy Vodka!
