EPIC by Elizabeth Cobbe

State Theatre, 719 Congress Ave.
In the harsh, dangerous swamps of the Florida coast, there sits the desolate town of Babylon with a pro-wrestling ring all its own. A stranger wanders into town and challenges the local hero to a battle, only to become suddenly the very best of friends. The two men begin a journey into the swamps, where they challenge the very idea of mortality and what it means to be human. An adaptation of the ancient Sumerian epic, the story is about discovering grace.
