Ark was written at the height of Y2K paranoia, when double zeroes were our greatest fear. Now, in this post-Hurricane Katrina climate, the play is more relevant than ever. Ark chronicles the lives of those who are left behind when an epic flood drowns their city.
In this apocalyptic fable, eight misfits are linked together by their daily ritual of riding the bus. Ark tells the story of what it means to be living on the fringe at a time when everyone is searching for dry land.
