A Commotion in the Ocean


Demeter (Goddess of Harvest & Agriculture) is having a bad day.  All she wants is some peace and quiet, but there is too much noise, distraction and plastic!  Her good friend Poseidon (God of the Sea, Earthquakes and Horses) means well, but he isn’t helping.    To distract Poseidon, Demeter decides to send him on a quest.  He comes back with more than she bargained for, but it might just help save the planet.


A Commotion in the Ocean helps audiences connect to the controversial and topical subject of plastic pollution.  At a time when the world’s seas are becoming full of plastic, the impact of which is having a considerable and detrimental affect on nature, it is essential we give our young people the opportunity to consider how to make a change, early on in their lives.
