Synopsis

What happened to the women and children aboard Noah's Ark?

A frighteningly zealous and single-minded Noah battles apocalyptic elements as we follow the story of the Flood through the eyes of his forgotten daughter. Obstacles litter our protagonist’s waterlogged path: stowaways, conflicts and the cramped animal cargo continuing to act as animals do, whatever their surroundings. Experience the dark reality in Geraldine McCaughrean’s Whitbread Award-winning epic, spectacularly re-envisaged by 40 talented performers and musicians. It'll leave you gasping for air...
