Take d Milk, Nah?
Pandemic Theatre (Toronto) | Rumble Theatre (Vancouver) | Presented with Diwali in BC | In association with Neworld Theatre (Vancouver)
OCT 16–26, 2019
Warning: this show uses haze and incense.
Written & Performed by Jivesh Parasram.
Co-created with Tom Arthur Davis and Graham Isador.
Jiv is “Canadian.” And “Indian.” And “Hindu.” And “West Indian.” “Trinidadian” too. Or maybe he’s just colonized. In Take d Milk, Nah?, Parasram blends personal storytelling and ritual to walk an audience through the Hin-do’s and Hin-don’ts at the intersections of these cultures. The show is a refreshingly candid and delightfully funny look at race, religion, and nationalism(s): what divides us—and what we’re willing to accept in the desire to belong. Oh, and there’s a cow.
It doesn’t matter who you are, or where you’ve come from, Take d Milk, Nah? is a must-see experience.”—Toronto Caribbean
