A Ragged Man production of

Go! Go! Gilgamesh!

Written by Phoebe Kreutz

Directed by Jacob Brandt

February 15th – 28th as part of the 2017 FRIGID Festival

The epic of the Gilgamesh is the first story ever written down by human beings and it is a doozy. Sex, power, violence, love, guilt, and death- it’s all there. But now the classic tale is getting a lively, irreverent makeover in this high-spirited musical romp complete with cardboard sets, a self-orchestrated cast and toe-tapping joke folk hits!

Long-time Antifolk star and member of the controversial Pizza Underground, Phoebe Kreutz wrote the whole show on her guitar. She has been called “the kingpin of the Joke Folk genre” by the New Yorker and “genuinely funny” by the New York Times.

With influences ranging from P.G. Wodehouse and Jonathan Richman to DMX, “Go! Go! Gilgamesh!” provides a clear way in to a sometimes-intimidating text. It’s tuneful. It’s irreverent. It’s got a magic bull, a sneaky prostitute, and a conga line. And all of this surrounds the genuine emotional core of our shared mortality. Yay!

The super sexy cast includes Paris Ellsworth, Susan Hwang, Phoebe Kreutz, Ezra Lowrey, Kim Onah, Michael Perrie Jr. and Yael Rizowy.

These houses look like McMansions that were in the dryer too long and now have shrunk to 3/4 size. The flaccid one at the top of the thread looks like the elastic is all stretched out, too.
