Disemboweling a national legend, Milk Presents invite you into a world of old-school gadgetry and bicycle power, to tell the story of a saint.
Follow George as he journeys from boy to man, to courageous warrior. Clawing at the walls of a sleepy English town, a beast threatens the norm. Townsfolk turn to drastic irreversible measures to preserve their way of life. Can the boyish hope of a nation save the day before he turns into a beast himself?
Pedal-powered brute force, elegant lyricism and punchy original music, this is a feisty retelling of England’s Patron Saint.
Manliness is dissected, heroism is slain and a legend is laid bare on a cadaver tray.
Milk teamed up with the award winning charity Campaign Against Living Miserably (CALM) for this production's national tour, and promoted information about male mental health and support at every performance.
