    The Wars of Heaven

    Presented by at Salvage Vanguard Theater

    April 30 - May 17, 2015


    The Wars of Heaven

    The Wars of Heaven, Part  I      

    God makes heaven and hell. . . . Who will remake them?

    Angels and demons are among us, serving God and Lucifer, fighting in our wars, upholding an ancient order. What happens when some of them begin to doubt the rules? Part I of Trouble Puppet's epic three-part tale is a spectacular Miltonic saga, told through tabletop and shadow puppetry. (Parts II and III are to come in 2016 and 2017. Each show stands alone as a complete dramatic work.)

    The show is created by the company (winner of a dozen B. Iden Payne Awards and a mainstay of Chronicle Top-10 lists) that brought Austin award-winning productions of The Jungle, Frankenstein, Riddley Walker, Toil and Trouble, The Cruel Circus, The Head, The Crapstall Street Boys, and Hyde & Jekyll.

    Tickets are $12–20 at
    ASL interpretation offered (date TBA).
    Group sales welcome. Director/cast talkbacks available for groups of five or more.

     **Not created for children. Contains cursing and violence (war). Probably OK for ages 13+.**

    Formerly titled The Siege of Heaven.
