Description

In the best tradition of noir thrillers that keep you on the edge of your seat, Tom Gardiner’s The Salt Remains is a study in twists and turns that will keep the audience guessing. Gardiner has written two formidable characters and trapped them in a deadbeat pub, that we can all relate to, in a small rural town at the end of the line.

SYNOPSIS

Olivia is an enigma who only just exists, working a job she hates. David is a middle-aged tourist passing through. When he arrives at the door, David is seeking refuge, from what is not clear. What tortured complexities drag the smell of salty mist from their haunting pasts to the present? A story of thwarted redemption, the crossing of their paths is an inconvenient intrusion. But like rivers, some paths should never be crossed because there is no turning back.

This is intelligent, original theatre in the style of Hitchcock but with its own unique flavour. The Salt Remains will keep you enthralled, guessing again and again as this thought-provoking tale unfolds.

PRODUCTION HISTORY

The Salt Remains was first produced by JUTE Theatre Company premiering at JUTE Theatre, Centre of Contemporary Arts Cairns, premiering June 17, 2016.
