Emily Bice's new play before the flood will run at the Chain Theatre Main Stage from September 8th-18th.

But what about the ones left behind? Brimming with humor and poignancy, this play turns the story of Noah's Ark into a full-hearted, feminist exploration of what we owe to each other - and to our planet - in times of crisis.

Directed by Nina Goodheart, before the flood features Jeb Brown* (Beautiful: The Carole King Musical), Ken Wulf Clark* (Jagged Little Pill), Mia Fowler, Kendra Holloway*, Erinn Holmes* (Fleischman Is In Trouble), Annamarie Kasper (Good Trouble), Spencer Lutvak, Kate Margalite*, Gilberto Saenz, Evie Schuckman, and Subin Kara Ahn.
