The Listening Hare Gilgamesh – He Who Saw Everything



One actor, in 45 minutes, performs the first story ever written down: an epic Babylonian poem based on the mythical adventures of the King of Uruk who lived and ruled around 2750 BC. It charts Gilgamesh’s journey from tyranny to friendship, from love to loss, from despair to wisdom. 4000 years after it was written, Gilgamesh retains a poignant message for the 21st Century. Colin R Campbell performs an abridged version of Robert Temple’s beautiful translation.
