Sample Text (from 4th play)

Utnapishtim:       Er, the small matter of being outwitted by a … water snake?

Ishtar:                  Yeah, what kind of a hero gets fooled by a serpent?

Gilgamesh:          Well, I was feeling tired … and thirsty

Enkidu:                 As you would after the kind of journey my friend here had undertaken!

Utnapishtim:       So, you’d think – after all that effort, he’d be a bit more careful with ‘the prize’?

Narrator:             And what was that prize?

Utnapishtim:       Oh, just - The secret of eternal life!

Narrator:             Wow! That was some prize! I would have guarded it … with my life?

Ishtar:                  To ensure everlasting life? You’d have thought so!

Sky God:              What a waste! Just goes to show, you can’t trust these mortals with anything!

Ishtar:                  Right! Not even ..

Enkidu:                 (Interrupting) Your heart? Isn’t that what this is all about? The fact that Gilgamesh dared to turn you down?

Gilgamesh:          You’re never going to forgive me for that, are you?

Ishtar:                  What? You not wanting to marry me? Huh! Why should that bother me?
