The Crick Club Presents Gilgamesh. Performance storytelling by Ben Haggarty with 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...

Over 3,500 years after this ancient Sumerian epic was first etched into clay tablets, 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.

Haggarty's bold and physical performance is underscored by the uncanny psychedelia of Brody's music. The result is a passionate, fast paced epic, laced with quick-witted humour.

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.

'VIVID, RICH AND IMPOSINGLY EPIC' «««« Dominic Maxwell, The Times
