Communion

Written by Leo Skilbeck
Directed by Jo Tyabji
Performed by LJ Parkinson & Cherelle Skeete

Do you want me to kiss you whilst you pray? Do you want me to kiss you harder whilst you pray? Two queers interrogate queerness, desire and God, before hustling to strike a deal with heaven. Originally developed as part of the Young Vic’s ‘5 plays’ series.

In Real Life

Written and Directed by Jo Tyabji

Performed by Arun Blair-Mangat

Jay’s the kind of gay that doesn’t like to make a big deal about it, until he spots a couple of queers he just can’t work out… can he tune his gaydar without setting it off himself?

Said Out Loud

Written by Prime Isaac
Directed by Jo Tyabji
Performed by Cherelle Skeete

She’s got a lot to say, she’s semi sober and the sun is about to come up, will she be able to say it all out loud before the clock strikes 6?

About the artists

Milk Presents enable people to queer their world through internationally acclaimed theatre, performance, celebration, and disruption. They create award winning theatre and performance as well as make space for exchange, entertainment and community. Their work is a protest and a celebration and sometimes a bit of a messy one. You know that sticky, messed-up, extraordinary and ambiguous thing called gender? Their work is often about that.
