Show Information

Fresh from his success with For Once (Pentabus Theatre at Sherman Cymru) and 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.

Olivier nominated for Best New Play, Salt, Root and Roe comes to Tim’s native Wales in a new Clwyd Theatr Cymru production. Iola and Anest are identical twin sisters living in isolation. Iola has pronounced herself ready to die, and Anest, her loving sibling, plans to go with her but Anest’s daughter Menna is determined to put a stop to their schemes.

"... a quietly impressive followup that confirms Price's promise."
The Guardian

"... a flawed and bonkers play that captures both the horrors of old age and the ties of family love."
The Telegraph
