About Noah's Ark
The president is dead and COLONEL BENSON, the consummate military White House “insider,” is tortured by the thought that he may have been unwittingly complicit in the assassination. Determined to redeem himself, BENSON journeys into his past, where he must confirm or deny his loyalties, patriotism, and faithfulness. Has he betrayed his values? Can he live in peace with his choices?
Inspired by activist, theologian, writer James Douglass’ book “JFK and the Unspeakable: Why he Died and Why it Matters,” Noah’s Ark sails the rough waters of the Kennedy presidency--its Bay of Pigs, the summit with Khrushchev in Vienna, a line in the sand in Berlin, the Cuban Missile Crisis and the prelude to Vietnam--to reveal the depths and shallows of humanity, drama, fears, and passion at the heart of these world events.
The reading of Noah’s Ark at Bricolage November 18 occurs in conjunction with the 50th anniversary of the JFK assassination (November 22). Bricolage is one of seven sponsors of Noah’s Ark readings, which will take place in November around the country.
