Marina Carr’s Gilgamesh Streaming This Weekend

News Theatre

Make sure to pre order your free tickets to watch Gilgamesh on demand this weekend 18th and 19th September. Details and booking information below.


A Galway 2020 commission, shot on location around Ireland earlier this year, the film is inspired by the Epic of Gilgamesh – the oldest surviving work of world literature; an epic poem with themes of love, power and death that are relevant to the present day. Firmly rooted in the landscapes of Ireland, this is a beautiful Macnas-infused interpretation of an ancient story, the first ever hero’s journey written over 3,000 years ago.
