Salvage Vanguard Theater invites you to attend a workshop reading of Decapitations by Megan Tabaque presented as part of Works Progress Austin.

In the Santos home, an alligator stalks, a mother talks to her car, a prodigal daughter binges on cereal, a devoted son raises lizards, and a neighbor's dog vanishes. Funny, surreal and strange, Decapitations is a ghost story exploring multi-racial Filipino identity in the swamps of central Florida.

Written by Megan Tabaque

Directed by Alexandra Bassiakou Shaw

Music by Henna Chou

Artwork by Rachel Long

Featuring performers Jonah Fujikawa, Sarah Chong Harmer, Nathan Daniel Ford, Jenny Connell Davis, Elizabeth Doss
