A one act play inspired by an ancient Sumerian myth depicting one of the first Mesopotamian gods.

Mummu is here to bring you a story. A good story with a great emotional landscape. Even deities who exist on an eternal plane don’t have time for bad theatre.

What can a reed, a feather, and some cow parts accomplish? Trying to find purpose in an indifferent world can seem impossible. You can never make something without unmaking something else.

The characters in this play are not bound by any limitations of gender, race, or other categories, and the play can be staged with no sets of any kind.
