Salt of the Earth

19th – 29th April

A coming of age story with characters we can all recognise.

A Dramatic Comedy


Written by John Godber
Directed by Tara Haywood

The play is a richly humorous, affectionate and touching portrait of life in a northern mining community spanning three generations, from 1947 to the present. This compelling saga vividly captures the dreams, ambitions, joys, fears, heartaches and disappointments of the Parker sisters, Annie and May, whose hopes centre on May's son, Paul, and his academic success.
