    MilkMilkLemonade by Joshua Conkel

    DREAMS, BULLIES, BARBIE DOLLS, EVIL NANNAS, A LADY IN A LEOTARD, BIG CHICKENS, A PARASITIC TWIN, QUEERS, LOVE, DEATH, HATE, AND ALPHAVILLE ALL COLLIDE IN:

    “See, we’ve all got roles in life, Emory. And it’s these roles that keep order.”

    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. The show has been hailed by various critics all over the country and is quite topical in nature due to the current rash of suicides amongst teenager in the LGBTQ community. MilkMilkLemonade also was voted Best Off Off Broadway Show of 2009!
