from the novel by Jeremy Page
Following sell-out regional tours of The Canada Boys, Parachute and Winter ‘53, fEAST presents an adaptation of Jeremy Page’s acclaimed novel.
Join Pip Langore as he tries to make sense of his family’s odd and troublesome history.
In Morston, North Norfolk, 1944, his Grandmother ‘Goose’ rescues a German airman buried up to his neck in the marsh. Nine months later the German vanishes in a makeshift boat, leaving Goose with a newborn daughter, Lil.
Taught to read the clouds by her mother, Lil is a strange child. When she becomes the object of two brothers’ desire, her life takes a tragic turn.
As he comes of age between the land and the sea, can Pip avoid the family’s marsh-fever and find happiness or will he, too, lose himself in Norfolk’s wetlands?
Set across four decades of blood, smoke, mud, tears and fish, Salt is a funny and tragic play about the relationship between people and the landscape they live in, with live music and a strong regional flavour.
