Translated by David Johnston.
Directed by Paula Paz.
Mayorga's play features Harriet, the tortoise that was reputedly collected by Charles Darwin during his 1835 visit to the Galapagos Islands and died - in an Australian zoo - in 2006, at the estimated age of 176. In Mayorga's play Harriet explains the history of the twentieth century through her experiences of surviving through it, outliving Darwin by more than 125 years.
