This play retells the story of Gilgamesh and his friend Enkidu, while exploring the subtext of human beings’ search for immortality. The gods and goddesses of ancient Mesopotamia provide the narration, and the chorus fills in the parts of the story needed to keep the action moving. This play explores all sorts of relationships and is quite poignant. Because there are crowd scenes, it can be successfully staged by both large and small classes. It will be between 40 minutes and 60 minutes ong, depending on the amount of movement and music you add into the scenes.
