Large Mixed Cast

Ayla is twenty-eight years old

She lived the first half of her life in the heart of a caring family, but when she was fourteen, she fell out of a boat into the sea and her father lost his life trying to save her

Since that day she has lived alone with her embittered mother as a semi-recluse

For fourteen years, this trauma and its aftermath, the weight of the unspoken words of love and reproach between her and her mother, has tainted her life

As the play opens, Ayla has decided to try to reclaim her life

She has just found a job at a surgery, and her increased interaction with the outside world leads to an awakening in her life

This transformation is an awakening for her mother too

At the final curtain, Ayla has evolved from being a social, psychological, and emotional misfit into a fully integrated member of society

Translated from the Turkish by Alvin Parmar
