Residents invited to watch special Salt Fest play
10:20am Sunday 8th September 2013 in News
THE campaign to reopen Droitwich Spa’s historic brine baths is being represented at this weekend’s Salt Fest through the performance of a play.
Jane McCann, from Save Our Brine Baths, is directing a short excerpt entitled A Flavour of... A Salt Maker’s Celebration, which has been adapted from the Richard Shepherd play.
Actor David Thompson, who specialises in character cameo roles, will be bringing Richard the Salter to life.
During the play the audience will be taken on a lively journey through some of Droitwich’s history, including a glimpse into the life of a salt maker’s family.
There are two performances of the play on the Saturday of the festival; the first at 11.30am, the second from 2pm.
The play will be performed on the steps of St Andrew’s Church, in front of the restored gardens that will also be opened to the public during Salt Fest.
