Gilgamesh and Enkidu at Uruk

There is a FREE READING tonight at 8pm at Casa, of Rorschach Co-Artistic Director Randy Baker's new play in development, Gilgamesh. I have mentioned this before and will continue to drive the point home that Rorschach is committed to bringing new works to the stage.

Rather than give you a synopsis of the play, I am providing a video of Jean-Luc Picard explaining the story of Gilgamesh to a dying alien, played by the late Paul Winfield in the Epsiode Darmok. The first part of the video concerns Picard translating the language of the alien. If you want to hear Patrick Stewart tell the story in his deep rich voice jump ahead to about 4 minutes and 30 seconds into the video.

The reading features, many of your Rorschach favorite. No reservations necessary, just show up at 8pm and enjoy! There will also be a short discussion after the reading. Come help new work grow.
