Salt, Root and Roe

at Stages Theater

by Tim Price

On the remote coast of Wales, 80-year-old twins Anest and Iola are determined to live out their twilight years on their own terms – even agreeing to face death together. But Anest’s daughter Menna returns home to inspire the sisters to face life instead. Salt, Root and Roe is a poetic masterwork about the nature of change, the comfort of home, and the eternal bond of love. Starring Sally Edmundson and developed through a co-production with Upstream Theater in St. Louis.

90 minutes with no intermission

Perfect for all ages!


"Twelve hours after leaving the theatre, I can't get the piece out of my head. Its mixture of the whimsical and the shocking, windy Welsh garrulousness and sudden moments of intense feeling, is undoubtedly distinctive. There may be more than a touch of Dylan Thomas's Under Milk Wood in the play's more poetic passages, with stories of mermen and villages under the sea, but it is also a piercing account of sisterly love and the agonies of Alzheimer's . . . It captures both the horrors of old age and the ties of family love with unmistakable compassion." - Daily Telegraph

Price's writing is amusingly alert to the absurdities that surround this heartbreaking situation... Just as Price's script seamlessly combines the dotty and the distressing, so it is able at once to invoke poetic marine myths and hilariously debunk them." - Independent

"Tim Price is a young Welsh writer who got glowing reviews for his first play, For Once. This new piece...is a quietly impressive follow-up that confirms Price's promise...Price is a talent to watch." - Guardian
