Powers New Voices Festival - Wipeout

Summary

Wipeout
By Aurora Real de Asua

SATURDAY, JANUARY 14
7:30 p.m.

It’s Gary’s 77th birthday and all she wants to do is surf. The only problem? She’s never stepped foot on a board before. But with the help of a hot-rod teenage surf instructor and the company of her two best friends, Gary is about to go on the ride of her life. As the three women navigate the currents of the Pacific, they must confront seven decades of secrets and sacrifices, not to mention the odd jellyfish or two. Aurora Real de Asua’s Wipeout is a septuagenarian surf comedy about what it really takes to hang 10.
