News   Anna Carteret, Roger Evans, Imogen Stubbs Set for Salt, Root and Roe, Part of Donmar Trafalgar Project
The cast for the world premiere of Hamish Pirie's production of Tim Price's Salt, Root and Roe, which begins performances Nov. 10 at Trafalgar Studios 2, prior to an official opening Nov. 14, has been announced.

The company will comprise Anna Calder-Marshall, Anna Carteret, Roger Evans and Imogen Stubbs.

The production launches the second of the Donmar Trafalgar seasons, promoting the work of the next generation of young directors who have been part of the Donmar Warehouse's annual Resident Assistant Director program.

Salt, Root and Roe revolves around twins Iola and Anest, who remain devoted to each other. Ageing fast, and with the time they have together more fragile by the day, they arrive at a desperate decision. Word of this reaches Anest's daughter Menna, who rushes to her long abandoned childhood home where her own ideas of love and compromise are tested to the limit.

According to press materials, the play is a tale of love and family set against the mythical backdrop of North Pembrokeshire.

Calder-Marshall, who plays Iola, previously appeared at the Donmar Warehouse in A Lie of the Mind. Other recent theatre work includes Danger: Memory: I Can’t Remember Anything (Jermyn Street Theatre), The House of Bernarda Alba (Royal Exchange, Manchester), Love (Lyric Hammersmith), A Kind of Alaska (Gate Theatre) and Comfort Me With Apples (Hampstead Theatre). Carteret, who plays Anest, was previously seen at the Donmar in The Family Reunion as part of the T.S. Eliot Festival. Other recent theatre credits include Lingua Franca (59E59 Theater, New York), Burnt by the Sun and Never So Good (both at the National Theatre) and Tom and Viv (Almeida Theatre).

Evans, who plays Gareth, has been seen in Fast Labour (Hampstead Theatre and West Yorkshire Playhouse) and Woyzeck (London's Gate Theatre and New York's St. Ann's Warehouse).

Stubbs, who plays Menna, was last seen on the London stage in Little Eyolf (Jermyn Street Theatre). Other recent credits include Private Lives (Royal Exchange, Manchester), Alphabetical Order (Theatre Royal Bath) and Scenes From a Marriage (Belgrade, Coventry).

Hamish Pirie was resident assistant director at the Donmar in 2006, and he is currently U.K. associate director for Shrek the Musical at the Theatre Royal Drury Lane.
