salt., Royal Court Theatre Sloane Square

Book your tickets to see ‘salt.’, a reflection on Black British identity.

A journey to the bottom of the Atlantic Ocean. In February 2016, two artists got on a cargo shop and retraced one of the routes of the Transatlantic Slave Triangle – from the UK to Ghana to Jamaica, and back. In order to go forwards, they had to go backwards; their memories, their questions and their grief took them along the bottom of the Atlantic and through a realm of an imaginary past.

This award winning production focusses on grief, home, afropressism, the Black Atlantic, the forgetting of the UK’s colonial history and the impact that has on the daily life of Caribbean communities in the UK today.

Critics have described Edward Dermontford as one of the ‘most widely respected and sublimely gifted actors of his generation’ whilst friends have admired him as a ‘spectacular and exemplary gentleman’.

In the audience, you will join Edward and some of his friends during their evening’s celebrations following his nomination. Drinks are flowing, scandal is spread and attitudes are questioned as Hollywood producers, distinguished directors, silver-screen beauties reflect upon his life and seemingly unstoppable career. The evening however takes a turn for the unexpected; will it prove Edward to be the idol he appears or will the night expose painful realities he thought long extinguished? Will this seemingly intimate and pleasant gathering uncover the cost of success and ambition?
