Salt Road


Anna Maria Murphy & Bagas Degol

Salt Road is peppered with tales of whimsy and wisdom,
to entrance both young and old alike.

Kneehigh Theatre’s Anna Murphy and Celtic folk band Bagas Degol present a captivating evening of original stories and music, about the sea and how it shapes us; those who leave, stay behind and come back.

They tell the story of “Cod” Jolliff, a fisherman, who finds a mysterious diary written by his great-great-great Grandfather, Ebenezer Jolliff, who had left Cornwall, with his two brothers, to preach in Tierra Del Fuego.

“Cod” decides to undertake an epic journey, to discover the secrets hidden in the diary’s pages.  In doing so, tales are revealed as he travels around our coasts: the Salt Roads.

Travel along with “Cod” and find out who kissed like a limpet and discover exactly what did Caleb Jolliff see in an iceberg?!

Writer and storyteller, Anna Murphy has had her work performed by Kneehigh Theatre, Rogue Theatre, C-Scape Dance and BBC Radio 4

Bagas Degol is a widely respected group on the Celtic music scene; their music perfectly matches the varying moods of the stories.

Together, they combine to create an evening of simple pleasure to be enjoyed by all.
