This is a story about noise and the sea; about the noise we leave in the oceans; about the plastic, the noise and the damage we leave for the future. This is a story about memory, hope and the opportunity to change things. Because a girl can always change the world. We just need to listen and act. 

About the Playwright

Itziar Pascual (Madrid, 1967) conceives dramatic writing as a boat for women and children to go first. She aims to use the theatrical world to bring together four elements of undoubted value: poetry, beauty, humor and justice. The contemporary treatment of myths and conventional methods were key elements in her initial works. But she has opted to raise awareness of those women whose contribution to culture has been ignored. Women such as Natalia Karp, Rosa Parks, Wangari Maathai, Rita Levi Montalcini, María Zambrano, Pina Bausch or Rosa Helena Lovo, among others, have been the inspiration for characters in her works.
