SYNOPSIS OF THE PLAY : Noah and his family are hard-working, honourable people, in contrast to the "wild people" of the valley. The song "So many jobs" is a cheerful action song depicting the daily chores undertaken by Noah and his family. God is angry with these "wild people" who are spoiling the world by littering, fighting, stealing etc. Noah is told by God that a big flood will be sent. Noah must build an ark to preserve each species of animal and to save his family and thus mankind. The "wild people" are sceptical and conflict occurs when they attempt to destroy the ark. At last the ark is ready, and all worldly creatures congregate nearby, summoned by God. A final attack on the ark is thwarted with help from the animals. The animals board the boat , the storm starts, and the voyage begins. When the storm abates, the food is running low and there is a wistful song "Will it All Be for Nothing?" Noah sends the raven and the dove to seek out dry land. The raven fails, but the dove brings back an olive twig in its beak, signifying dry land nearby. God sends a lovely rainbow over the world, and announces his promise to never send another flood.The play ends in celebratory mood with a rocky song - "Well done Mr Noah".
