Go! Go! Gilgamesh!
The world's first written epic gets a joke-folk makeover in this spirited romp through ancient Mesopotamia. It's about love, friendship and the adventure that defined humanity, as we know it. The cast plays all the instruments. The set is made out of cardboard. The memories are forever.

Susan Hwang tells stories and makes things that are usually collapsible, like songs and times. Her instruments take up space (accordion, Janggu—traditional Korean drum, voice) but other physical objects she can’t play intimidate her, so she likes when her creations, like her TV variety talk show—The La La La Show— is broadcast into thin air or elsewhere online. She founded, curates and hosts The Bushwick Book Club – a monthly performance series presenting new work by local musicians artists inspired by literature. Her new literature-based music duo, Lusterlit, just released her EP of Vonnegut-inspired songs. She plays accordions because they are pretty and lighter than pianos (barely).
Phoebe Kreutz has released four albums, toured extensively in Europe and the U.S. and is constantly working on musicals. Past projects include "Thanks!" at the Oscar Hammerstein Festival and "Awesomer & Awesomer" at The Triad Theater.
