This year’s York Mystery Plays will involve lots of actors scattered around the city representing biblical characters who will tell you their story. Quite a nice, interactive idea.
However, BBC’s Breakfast show interviewed the man who will be playing Noah. He said that Noah is a great character to play because he gets to save all humanity. You see, I would say the opposite: Noah condemns all of humanity – except for his immediate family – to destruction. Not to mention all the other organisms that would have been destroyed had the whole story not been made up.
He’s undoubtedly the most unpleasant character in the Bible apart from Yahweh himself.
He could have warned people.
