About the play:

If the bioluminescent phytoplankton (aka firefish) keep disappearing, life as we know it on the planet will be destroyed! Ten-year-old Ayesha has courage, intelligence, creativity, and a complete lack of caution. Even so, the mission that Shekina, Queen of the Seas, has charged her with may be slightly out of her league! Surrounded by cryptic clues involving Galileo, Gaudi’s Casa Batllo, Stephen Hawking’s theories and the science of wormholes, Ayesha undertakes a perilous quest across the world. With naught but a snarky surfboarding snail as a sidekick, she’ll need to be as bold as the sea in order to save the world!
