The Hull Noah Play was an exciting annual event in Medieval Hull. Now, in a bid to revive this tradition, the Hull 2017 Mystery Play Consortium is spearheading a major theatre production and festival that will see local communities come together in a series of performances exploring the eventful story of Noah and its contemporary resonances.
Rooted in the flood narrative appearing in several religious traditions, but increasingly universal in message, the Noah Play seeks to examine the cultural heritage and practices that underpin human behaviour through powerful and compelling storytelling.
The Noah Play and Other Tales sees the Historical Play as the centrepiece with a number of variations on the flood narrative devised and performed by a number of performing arts groups and schools. This festival of wagon theatre will feature the Noah story itself; the impact of climate change; migration and other interpretations.
The Noah Theatre combines historical context with puppetry, animals and the ark, slapstick routines with solemn spectacle.
The event runs from 11am – 4pm.
