About the Show/Event
Information for Milk and Gall at Theatre503, Inner London (Play). It's election night 2016. An entire country holds its breath. Except for Vera, who has to focus on breathing. That's what everyone keeps telling her: breathe, breathe, breathe. She's in the hospital, giving birth to a baby boy - and she has no idea that America just lost its mind. Over the course of one seemingly unending year, tensions mount between Vera and her second-wave feminist mother, she struggles to connect physically with her husband, and her friendship with her Syrian-American best friend Amira falters. In this surreal and fragmented play mimicking the experience of sleep-deprived new parents, the personal and the political spheres collide to push Vera to the point of exhaustion. Raising a magnifying glass to the experience of being a new mother under Trump, Milk and Gall explores the terror of the mundane. While everyone else is out marching, Vera's at home stuck to a breast pump.
