THE BOOK OF NOAH
By Rick Reiss

Directed By Jared Milian

Synopsis: The Book of Noah is the story of a 16-year-old adopted boy (Noah) unable to control his violent outbursts, and how his parents navigate their lives to keep their family safe.

The play confronts love, faith, family, and the difficult choices all parents must make to keep families whole.
