Emory is an effeminate 11-year-old boy who lives on a farm with his chain smoking Nanna and his only friend, a depressed chicken about to be processed. Nanna wishes Emory would get his head out of the clouds, stop choreographing ribbon stick dance numbers, and be more like Elliot, the boy down the road with a penchant for burning things. But Emory and Elliot have a relationship -- just not one Nanna would expect or approve of. With absurd, poignant dialog and brutal characterizations, MilkMilkLemonade is a bitterly funny exploration of gender, sexuality, life, death, and the human body.


Joshua Conkel’s deliciously droll play could have become cloyingly whimsical… if it weren’t for the shrewdly savvy direction of Matthew Elkins and the wonderful cast of brilliant farceurs who drive the play through its many permutations with comic charm and incisive delicacy.

Director Matthew Elkins' West Coast premiere staging is graced with five versatile actors, who expertly tap into the script's boisterous fun, while deftly illuminating the sense of melancholy and social outrage right beneath the surface.
