What You'll Get


Now that you've finished wrapping your mind and mouth around this play's truly epic title (feel free to take another minute should you need it), The Plagiarists invite you to enjoy the story of humanity's oldest story -- and the man who discovered it. In ancient Sumeria, Gilgamesh, King of Uruk and two-thirds god, rules his people with cruelty and selfishness, so the gods send an equal to challenge him. In Victorian London, George Smith, working-class engraver, is hired by the British Museum and discovers the world's first great work of literature. Now, both will embark on epic quests in this story of ancient hubris, Victorian chauvinism, heroic journeys, mythical monsters, the meaning of life, the inevitability of death and the universality of human experience. Catch The Epic of Gilgamesh as Told by Mr. George Smith, Associate Curator for the British Museum (Deceased) at Chicago's Berger Park Coach House.
