September 17th, 2016 – September 28th, 2016


The play explores the impact of addiction and mental illness on the relationship between two teenage sisters and their alcoholic mother. When Lilias returns home after a year at school, she finds her mother Vivian increasingly fixated on Great Aunt Rose ‐ a figure Lilias believes never existed ‐ and her sister Petal virtually engrossed in a construction-paper fantasy world. Faced with an ever‐deteriorating family situation, Lilias struggles to chart a course that protects herself and Petal from Vivian’s abuse. But as tensions run high, the roles of abuser and victim become blurred. With rich theatricality, imagery and language, Salt immerses the audience in a moving and modern portrait of mental illness.
