The creative mind behind Kayak — a play about a suburban housewife who ends up stranded in her son’s old kayak — will be at the central branch of the Vancouver Public Library tonight to read from her award-winning work.

Jordan Hall’s play, which debuted in Toronto and Winnipeg this summer, is a modern-day retelling of the Ark parable.

The reading — as well as discussions on playwrighting and environmental activism — will be held between 7 p.m. and 9 p.m. at 350 West Georgia St., meeting room, level 3.

Admission to the reading is free. For more information visit
