Twins Iola and Anest remain devoted to each other. Ageing fast, and with the time they have left together growing more fragile by the day, they arrive at a desperate decision. Word of this reaches Anest’s daughter, Menna, who rushes back to her long-abandoned childhood home where her own ideas of love and compromise will be tested to the limit. Salt, Root and Roe is a wry, heart-breaking drama of love, grief and acceptance set against the mythical backdrop of North Pembrokeshire. The play premiered in a production by the Donmar Warehouse at Trafalgar Studios, London on 10 November 2011.
