A One Yellow Rabbit classic returns, with a fresh interpretation of the world's oldest recorded story. Already ancient by the time of Christ, Gilgamesh reveals a remarkable vision of humanity. Goddesses and monsters abound, astonished humans ridden by fear and exhilaration search for the antidote to the fear of death. It's the first ever buddy movie, recorded over 4000 years before Thelma and Louise took their epic drive through the desert. Gilgamesh Lazyboy is One Yellow Rabbit's retelling of the ancient epic with trademark humour, energy and tenderness.

Venue Maps 

The Big Secret Theatre is not a secret anymore and at one point it wasn't even a theatre! The space, hidden away on the +15 level of Arts Commons was originally designed to function as a lounge. In 1987, One Yellow Rabbit Performance Theatre approached Arts Commons seeking space and the lounge space was leased to them on a trial basis. Today the company calls the Big Secret Theatre their permanent home. 

This venue has limited rental dates, to inquire about renting this space, please contact Johanne Deleeuw at or 403-264-3224, ext. 4370.
