Salt from Contemporary Ritual Theatre @ The Fisher Theatre

May 25 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

‘I’m goin’ out wi’ th’ Tide, old wench;
I came in on the Flood.
An’ the Sea is streaked wi’ Silver,
An’ the Sun is red wi’ Blood.’
The East Norfolk Coast, 1770.

Man Billy is a pious young fisherman living under the rule of his domineering Mother, Widow Pruttock. Two things govern their life: the herring harvest and devotion to God.

Into this cold and passionate life comes the ageless woman Sheldis, a singer with supernatural gifts. As Billy’s infatuation with her grows, his Mother, believing him bewitched, will go to any length to break the spell.

Set in a stark, mythic world, and filled with sea shanties, mummers’ dances, hymns and folk songs, SALT is a visceral tale of faith, jealousy and demonic passion.

This is an amazing opportunity to experience an original theatre production in the round.  The Black Shuck Festival’s Polly Wright (of The Feathered Thorns) wrote the song that accompanies this amazing production.

Suggested age 12+
