THE EPIC OF GILGAMESH AS TOLD BY MR. GEORGE SMITH, ASSOCIATE CURATOR FOR THE BRITISH MUSEUM (DECEASED) by Gregory Peters,
directed by Jack Dugan Carpenter October 7-29 at Berger Park Coach House
The stories of Gilgamesh, ancient King of Uruk, hero of the oldest epic known to humanity; and George Smith, working-class Victorian, who first discovered and translated the epic, are woven together in this mix of the fabulous and the mundane: ancient Sumerians, reserved Victorians, giant scorpions, archaeological gamesmanship, mythical monsters, museum politics, disgruntled gods, language barriers, and the Great Flood.
CIRCLE HOUSE a group-written work assembled by Jessica Wright Buha directed by Kate Nawrocki
April 28 - May 27 at Berger Park’s North Mansion
This environmental piece examines the rhythms of birth and death: how we find meaning in life when death is inevitable, how life persists and regenerates, the trials of growing up, and the cyclical nature of the world.
