Milk and Gall archiveIt'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.
