Ishtar is a new play based on the ancient Babylonian story of Ishtar (the goddess of love) and her descent into the underworld. 

Follow Ishtar as she forces her way into the murky underworld through each of its seven gates, and comes face to face with its queen.  But what does she want? and will she ever get to leave?

Drawing on themes of identity, grief and power, Ishtar takes one of the world’s oldest recorded stories and gives it new life, showing the power, intensity and appeal of this ancient story in the modern world.
