Works Progress Austin: Two Sweaty by Megan Tabaque
June 30 2018, 8pm at the Dougherty Arts Center. FRee sharing!
Two Sweaty is the story of two estranged sisters who find their way back to themselves in an urban boutique cycling studio. Their journey of self-care and empowerment doesn’t stop at self-actualization. The cult like cycle club turns them into power crazy murderers. Two Sweaty is an exploration of the female body kicking ass on stage, women being frightening, intimidating, and strong. Join us for the free Works Progress Austin sharing on Saturday June 30th.

SVTV Workshop: Spring 2018
Level II: Polishing Your Pilot
4 classes between April 14- June 2
Salvage Vanguard Theater announces SVTV Level ll: Polishing Your Pilot. This winter, we launched SVTV- a new series of television-writing workshops. In January we developed a logline, show bible, and revised outline for the pilot episode of an original television show. Over the course of four classes, SVTV Level ll will dig deep into our pilots. We’ll assess them for overall story structure, character development, world-building and voice. We’ll think about where to play up originality, and where traditional television tropes help our cause. We’ll nail down our elevator pitch so that we can articulate the “promise of our premise” quickly and easily.
While SVTV Level ll: Polishing Your Pilot is meant as the follow-up to SVTV: Creating the Show Bible, any participant with the first draft of a pilot in hand is welcome to take the class.
