Babcock Performing Readers
Before the Flood
by A. A. Milne
Impromptu Play Reading
Hosted by Gordon Jones
Come and be a star as you are selected from the audience to read, A.A.
Milne’s take on what happens after Yahweh speaks to Noah and before the rain
falls. Don’t look for children’s toys here. Most know Milne as creator of
Winnie the Pooh, but he was a first class playwright the first half of the
20th century. “Flood” is a great introduction to this neglected playwright’s
whimsical treatment of serious subjects. In addition, a reading of Milne’s
explanation of “the secret in the poet’s heart” at the end of Shaw’s
“Candida.” It may surprise you.
