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 modern comic fable about being different and sustaining the environment was workshopped at the Sundance Institute and premiered at Idaho Theatre for Youth.
This family-friendly performance is presented by students in the MFA Theatre program studying Theatre for Young Audiences.
