Description

The god of love, right? Hannah is that god. But when she's spurned by a supercharged bromance, she discovers she's also the god of war. Gilgamesh is a mythic demigod hero, but after suffering the death of his arch-rival (turned lover?) Enkidu at the hands of Hannah (furious about being left out and the slaughter of her pet bull, with whose severed leg she was face-slapped), he must confront his mortal limitations. Farcical romp on heroism, jealousy and listening to your mother. 'This incredible ensemble is quite stunning' ***** (FringeReview.co.uk). Fringe Review Outstanding Theatre Award Winner 2015.
