Rumble Theatre and Pandemic Theatre, in association with Neworld Theatre, are pleased to present the Vancouver premiere production of Take d Milk, Nah?, written and performed by Jivesh Parasram (AKA our amazing Artistic Director).
Jiv is “Canadian.” And “Indian.” And “West Indian.” “Trinidadian”, too. Or maybe he’s just colonized. In Take d Milk, Nah?, Jiv blends personal storytelling and ritual to walk an audience through the Hin-dos 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.
