Waiting for Gilgamesh: Scenes from Iraq
A World Premiere
presented by
Fort Point Theatre Channel, the Joiner Institute for the Study of War and Social Consequences, and the Odysseus Project and cosponsored by the Center for Arabic Culture

Drawing on both Bertolt Brecht and Samuel Beckett, this world premiere by Iraqi playwright Amir Al-Azraki explores diverse Iraqi points of view about the events leading up to and following the U.S.-led invasion of their country in 2003. In its exposition of truth as rooted in perspective, "Waiting for Gilgamesh" challenges one-sided ways of thinking. "The spectators are nowhere to find ready-made answers," Al-Azraki has written, "but are left with a clash of voices, each cudgeling his views."
