Sink or Swim
by Mike Kenny
In this witty modern spin on the story of Noah’s Ark, a family bicker and banter as they try to cope with life on their boat. Along with their mute daughter who remembers those left behind and a huge assortment of animals they ponder life before and after the unending rain; will people live in harmony? Will there be an end to cruelty? Will lions be vegetarian? Giant images of animals, birds and paradise are painted live throughout the show and fill the stage with a riot of color.
