Jonny and Troy Schremmer / Dusty Brown


August 16, 2011


The New York International Fringe Festival
A Production of The Present Company
and Smokin’ Holes Theatre Co.

By Jonny Schremmer and Troy Schremmer
Music by Dusty Brown

Workshopping at IRT before opening at the New York International Fringe Festival, The Ballad of Rusty and Roy was inspired by Dusty Brown’s music. The play is about two half-brothers, both singer/songwriters in their own right, who reconnect after years of a strained relationship. The play creates an environment where the storytelling and songs of these characters combine and creates a unique and moving experience between performer and audience.

Premiering this month at the New York International Fringe Festival. Performances at IATI Theater, August 17-28 (6 shows only!)

Half-brothers Rusty and Roy come from the same Texas trailer park but have little in common besides their guitars and step-dads. Impending fatherhood brings them together again in this screwed-up-family singalong for adult children of alcoholics written by Jonny and Troy Schremmer with music by Dusty Brown, starring Dusty Brown and Troy Schremmer, directed by Shana Gold.
