By Joshua Conkel
Directed by Jonathan Monk
Emory is an effeminate 11-year-old boy who lives on a farm with his chain-smoking Nanna and his only friend, a depressed chicken about to be processed. Nanna wishes Emory would get his head out of the clouds, stop choreographing ribbon stick dance numbers, and be more like Elliot, the boy down the road with a penchant for burning things. But Emory and Elliot have a relationship — just not one Nanna would expect or approve of. With absurd, poignant dialog and brutal characterizations, MilkMilkLemonade is a bitterly funny exploration of gender, sexuality, life, death, and the human body.
Some roles will require intimacy work and/or fight choreography. Trustus is committed to providing a safe environment for all actors when engaging in intimacy work. Casting for MilkMilkLemonade will not be gender-specific or age-specific.
