Take d Milk, Nah?

Presented by Theatre Passe Muraille in association with Pandemic Theatre and with support from b current
Touring Partner Rumble Theatre

Jiv is Canadian. Jiv is Indian. And Hindu. And West Indian. He’s Trinidadian too. Or maybe Jiv is just colonized. In Take d Milk, Nah? Jiv Parasram (Dora nomination for Outstanding New Play)  blends personal storytelling and ritual to walk audiences through the intersections of these cultures.

A refreshingly candid and delightfully funny look at race, religion and nationalism(s), Take d Milk, Nah? examines what divides us – and what we’re willing to accept in the desire to belong. The show returns to Passe Muraille after a sold out run in 2018. Oh, and there’s a cow.
