NAC English Theatre Presentation

Pandemic Theatre (Toronto) Rumble Theatre (Vancouver) Co-production
Original production by Pandemic Theatre and b current performing arts with the support of Theatre Passe Muraille

From delivering a calf in Trinidad to navigating the turbulent waters of the Maritime-Canadian education system in a post 9/11 world, Indo-Caribbean-Hindu-Canadian Jivesh Parasram offers the Hin-dos and Hin-don’ts for those living in the margins and the mainstream, with telling observations about trying to find your place in the world.

Take d Milk, Nah? is a highly-hyphenated story about the search for identity, the inevitable hazards this entails… and cows. Parasram mixes self-deprecating humour with gut-punching truth to ask, who is served by the constructs of cultural identity?

Hold on to your chakras – your mind is about to be blown.

Performance is approximately 85 minutes with no intermission.
