A few months after the mysterious passing of her younger sister, Gaya receives a series of Facebook messages from her. Suddenly, she begins to wonder: did her little sister really die? And if so, who then is sending all those messages? With the help of a curious friend, Gaya embarks on a heart-wrenching journey that will reveal the unlikely truth behind the chilling Facebook chat.

In Search of Salt is a mystery-drama play that explores loss in the age of social media. It does so through a complex psychological journey into the self, sisterhood, and mother-daughter relations.

An original play, In Search of Salt was written to pass the Bechdel test* and will be performed in an intimate theatre-in-the-round** setting.

*The Bechdel test asks whether a work of fiction features at least two women who talk to each other about something other than a man. (Source: Wikipedia)

**Theatre-in-the-round, also called arena stage, central stage, or island stage, form of theatrical staging in which the acting area, which may be raised or at floor level, is completely surrounded by the audience. It has been theorised that the informality thus established leads to increased rapport between the audience and the actors. (Source: Britannica)
