Through June 2, MTC presents “Inanna and the Huluppu Tree,” a theater performance that fuses magic, myth and mystery. “Inanna and the Huluppu Treet” takes theatergoers back 4,000 years to a time when Inanna, the Sumerian goddess of sexual love, fertility and warfare, confronts a series of perplexing problems. In the end, as all powerful goddesses do, Inanna restores harmony to the a city ravaged by chaos and calamity.
