About this show

Combining rigorous physical theater, live music and striking stage images, The Oldest Story in the World examines the enduring human question: how do we live knowing that we must die? The play weaves the story of king Gilgamesh and his companion Enkidu through different locations and time periods--Victorian England, modern day Iraq, the sexually charged realm of the gods--to resurrect this remarkably moving and relevant ancient story about how to live a human life, and the consequences of arrogance.
