Performance storytelling by Ben Haggarty. Music by Jonah Brody.
A bored king,
A wild man tamed by a whore,
A quest for eternal life,
And the deepest secrets of the gods…
World renowned storyteller Ben Haggarty, and multi-instrumentalist Jonah Brody, bring Gilgamesh to the stage in an extraordinary and powerful telling of one of the oldest stories in the world.
Deities are irritated and appeased by turn, supernatural beings are slain, apocalypse is averted, and our anti-hero turned hero, discovers what it really is to be a man. The result is a passionate, psychedelic, fast paced epic, laced with quick-witted humour.
