The English Drama Group Salzburg is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year with a special event: a Mini English Drama Festival. In addition to their own performance (6th till 9th of June) they are going to have two guest performing groups. Entity Theatre e.V. is going to close the festival with "Numbers" by Mar Gómez Glez. It is based on the true story of the freighter Francisco y Catalina, which was stuck in diplomatic limbo off the shores of Malta in 2009 and was not allowed to berth, because the crew had saved 51 immigrants from the sea.
In 2009, the crew of a Spanish shrimp trawler called Francisco y Catalina rescued 51 migrants drifting aboard a sinking raft in the Mediterranean Sea. The crew and refugees were denied access to the Maltese port of Valletta and were left stranded. They struggled to survive as food, water, and patience quickly dwindled. Meanwhile, diplomatic efforts were made to resolve the situation while the matter was hotly debated by the public and media.
"Numbers" is based on the events which transpired while the vessel was stuck in diplomatic limbo.
