SALT, ROOT AND ROE
Clwyd Theatr Cymru
You like, you like jam and she likes marmalade. Um. You can’t tie balloons because of your fat fingers and she hasn’t got any puff so, you blow the balloons and she ties them. She likes the sun, you always get too hot. You wanted children and she had me. She cries at weddings even though she says she won’t, and you’ve always got hankies. You used to go to each other’s houses on laundry days to help. And we’d all make the beds together.
Olivier nominated for Best New Play, Salt, Root and Roe receives its Welsh première in a new Clwyd Theatr Cymru production.
Iola and Anest are identical-twin sisters living in isolation. Iola is struggling with a brain tumour and Anest finds it increasingly difficult to care for her. When the sisters reach a momentous decision, Anest’s daughter Menna is determined to put a stop to their schemes.
Fresh from his success with The Radicalisation of Bradley Manning (National Theatre Wales), playwright Tim Price’s funny, lyrical play about love, loss and the power of belief is set against the backdrop of the North Pembrokeshire coast.
Directed by Clwyd Theatr Cymru Associate Director Kate Wasserberg, following her acclaimed productions of Glengarry Glen Ross by David Mamet and Bruised by Matthew Trevannion.
