Peninsula Players Theatre presents the Wisconsin première of Salvage, a play by Michigan playwright, Joseph Zettelmaier. Salvage, an intriguing comedy-drama/mystery-romance that has more twists than a corkscrew, closes the 2018 season on Oct. 14.
Salvage centers around Jason Byrnes, the proprietor of a Detroit collectibles shop. Every nook and cranny of his dream store, Hidden Treasures, is brimming with vintage monster movie figurines, collectible comic books, autographed photos and classic movie and sports memorabilia. While some people call these items junk, Jason considers them art and it is his dream to be the guardian of these illustrious gems.
Salvage was first introduced to Door County audiences in 2016 when it was part of the Peninsula Players winter play reading series, The Play’s the Thing. Patrons were enamored with the play and encouraged Artistic Director Greg Vinkler to mount a full stage production.
“Salvage is set in one of my favorite places to explore,” said Vinkler. “Secluded shops such as Hidden Treasures are caretakers of nostalgia, holding lots of childhood memories and celebrating so many moments from our past. I love wandering through such places and am always surprised by what I find.”
Salvage performs Tuesdays through Sundays at 7 pm, except for Oct. 14 at 3 pm. For information or tickets, call 920.868.3287 or visit peninsulaplayers.com.
