MILK PRESENTS SELF SERVICE


 

A series of episodes that will explore the notion of que..oh..erm..quee..no it’s a kind of queh...oh wait a minute...Queer. 

Milk Presents take a wild stab at defining the indefinable in Milk Presents: Self Service, a show that spans decades of popular culture, political upheaval and quaint normalness. This show episodically and sporadically leads the audience on a punk style journey through queer in an attempt to see what ‘normal’ really is when it comes to gender, sexuality and beyond. It brings into question the way we live our lives and things we take for granted.

With original live music, animation and wild costumes, Milk Presents brings you more of their uniquely low-fi, raucous performance. From Ann Widdecombe’s crusade to protect marriage to influences from the Beatnik generation, this show wears high heels a size too small and sunglasses a size too big.

'A messy, knowing, joyous, tender, angry piece of cabaret'  The Stage ★★★★

'This fabulously enjoyable queer cabaret is filthy, flirty, cheeky, and far more complex than the glittery surface would have you believe' Fest ★★★★

‘Milk Presents Self Service is a profound, liberating experience and a whole lot of gloriously camp and tacky fun’ Broadway Baby ★★★★

“An absolute gem” British Theatre Guide ★★★★★
