The Last Paving Stone
The Last Paving Stone
By Y York.

Cast: 2m., 4w. (and the Sound of the Ground). Everyone is celebrating the placement of the last paving stone covering the last unpaved patch of ground on the planet—that is, everyone except Ito, a girl with ears so big she can hear the ground talking. Everyone else thinks Ito's "sound from the ground" is her attempt to justify her humiliatingly large ears. Even Jassmin, a lass with a nose so big she can smell a lie, doesn't believe in Ito's sound. Threatened with the forever-silenced ground, Ito risks the ire of her pa to share the ground sound ("spoken" in music) with normal-eared people. This modem comic fable about being different and sustaining the environment was workshopped at the Sundance Institute and premiered at Idaho Theatre for Youth. Area staging. Approximate Running Time: 60 minutes.
