Echoes of Gran Canaria

Act 1: The Encounter

Scene 1: The Enchanting Dunes of Maspalomas

In the heart of Gran Canaria, amidst the rolling dunes of Maspalomas, two women, Alba and Lucía, cross paths. Alba, an avant-garde artist with a penchant for the eccentric, captures the essence of the island in her surreal paintings. Lucía, a linguist, is on a quest to unravel the mysteries of the ancient Guanche language.

Their encounter is marked by an unusual event—a sandstorm that whisks away Lucía’s notes, only to be caught by Alba. This serendipitous moment sparks an unusual friendship.

Scene 2: The Mysterious Stranger

As they explore the island, their paths entwine with Alejandro, a charismatic botanist with a passion for Canarian flora. Both women, unbeknownst to each other, find themselves enchanted by Alejandro’s charm and knowledge.

Act 2: The Blossoming and The Conflict

Scene 1: The Festival of Lights

During the vibrant Festival of Lights in Las Palmas, Alba and Lucía independently plan to confess their feelings to Alejandro. The festival is a tapestry of colors, music, and laughter. It’s here, under a kaleidoscopic sky, that the comedy of errors unfolds.

Scene 2: The Misunderstood Confession

In a hilarious twist, both Alba and Lucía end up confessing their love to the wrong person—a bewildered street performer who is an Alejandro look-alike. The mix-up leads to a series of comical and awkward encounters.

Act 3: Revelations and Resolutions

Scene 1: The Heart-to-Heart

The truth comes to light in the serene setting of the Jardín Botánico Canario. Alba and Lucía, realizing their mutual affection for Alejandro, have a heart-to-heart. In a twist of fate, they discover that their connection with each other is stronger than their fleeting feelings for Alejandro.

Scene 2: The Uncommon Bond

As the play concludes, Alba and Lucía decide to collaborate on a project, combining art and linguistics, to preserve the cultural heritage of Gran Canaria. They agree to remain friends, cherishing the unique bond they formed.

Alejandro, in a surprising turn, reveals his plan to leave the island to study plants in the Amazon, leaving both women relieved and amused at the serendipity of life.

Epilogue: The Last Sunset

The final scene is a poignant moment on the beach, with Alba and Lucía watching the sunset. They reflect on love, friendship, and the unexpected journeys life takes us on. The curtain falls as they laugh, the sound echoing over the waves of Gran Canaria.
