Enkidu (Jenefer Haig)
Who was Enkidu? His name is found in the earliest known writings of human literature, on clay tablets excavated in the Near East, known as the Epic of Gilgamesh. Enkidu is the natural man (who persists to this day as the Green Man). Beautiful, and swift as the gazelle, harmless and untroubled, all goes well until he clashes with the interests of human beings by destroying the traps they set for animals. They take counsel, and the oldest and wisest among them advises them to bring a woman, skilled in the art of seduction, who will lure him into becoming human. The strategy works and Enkidu joins the rest of mankind, to his ultimate doom.

What if the beautiful youth who lived in harmony with the animals, appeared now, and gave up the wilderness for love - would the poor innocent creature survive? Would his offspring survive - supposing one were female?
This story follows their fortunes or misfortunes, and is purely imaginary, covering Enkidu’s and his descendants’ sojourn on this planet throughout the twentieth century.
