Fact And Fable - water on the brain

BATS Theatre; 6.30pm; 3-6 March, 2004 $10/$12/$15: bookings on 802 4175

The show Is Noah’s Ark frozen on the top of Mount Ararat? Kevin Keys plays an ensemble of characters whose lives touch this question in different ways. At the heart of the play are two brothers, one a falied academic whose specialty is the historical basis of great mythical floods, the other the producer of populist ‘edutainment’.

Co-devisor Kevin Keys is an actor and musician. He has appeared in a number of productions in Wellington, including the Fringe 2003’s hit show Potted. He has recently appeared on stage in The Tempest.

Director Ken Keys will be well known to many as the founder and Artistic Director of the National Youth Drama.
