Synopsis: The Night of Blue and Salt follows WIFE and MAN, a couple who's young love rusts into a seemingly hopeless fate. WIFE, full of magic and manic, longs to be a writer, often speaking in lines of Sylvia Plath and Virginia Woolf. MAN, full of knowledge and numbers becomes a surgeon, speaking in medical jargon and statistics. When WIFE and MAN endure the tragedy of losing their baby, Lovey Love, their lack of communication is ultimately their greatest downfall. Written in the style of Theatre of the Absurd and riddled with dark humor, WIFE gradually dismantles the shackles of domesticity and a loveless marriage to be the dramatic feminist ingenue she always longed to be.
