SELF SERVICE and SAINTHOOD
MILK PRESENTS: SELF SERVICE
Milk Presents take a wild stab at defining the indefinable in 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. Self Service pokes fun at the way we live our lives and things we take for granted like getting married and having children. Can we use queer to explore different ways of living, loving, being and experiencing the world.

A Real Man’s Guide to Sainthood - TOURING AUTUMN 2013
This is a feisty retelling of England’s Patron Saint George and his journey from boy to man to courageous warrior.
Follow George as he journeys from boy to man, to courageous warrior, in a tale that begins in the safety of a sleepy English town. Clawing at its walls is a beast threatening all, forcing townsfolk to turn to drastic measures to preserve their way of life. Can George save the day before he turns into a beast himself? See the English male identity dissected on a cadaver tray. A sixty minute whirlwind of a show that is sure to put hairs on your chest.
Pedal-powered brute force, elegant lyricism and a punchy original score, this is a low-fi spectacular involving OHP's and Bicycle powered lights - all operated by the cast!
"Fun and imaginative" A Younger Theatre ****

“If the Famous Five retold the myth of St. George in an attic full of junk it might look something like this.” Three Weeks ****
"Undeniably potent" The Stage
"A brilliantly fun and good-natured exploration of modern manhood" The Scotsman
“The sucker punch of such a playfully well-honed delivery gives much food for thought in a piece of work that itself puts the boot into the man’s world it occupies.”The Herald
"a fantastic balancing act of visual wonder with a potent and relevant story" Fringe Review*****
