MilkMilkLemonade is “unafraid to go for the belly: They want you laughing, nauseated or both. It's proof of how desperately comedy needs audacity: Here, as on your average chicken farm, only the plucky survive." --TimeOut New York

MilkMilkLemomade is “about Emory, an 11-year-old boy who lives on a farm with his Nanna, and a depressed chicken named Linda, who is 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. 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 West Side Show Room was awarded a City Arts Action Grant from RAAC Rockford Area Arts Council to help produce MilkMilkLemonade!
