► ABOUT THE PLAY


“When you get back to your capital, you can tell them how people live in Russia, ’cause they don’t have the faintest idea.” -- Black Milk

In Black Milk, Lyovchik and Poppet, a small-time crook and his heavily pregnant, chain-smoking, lollipop-sucking wife, descend on a post-Communist wasteland, swindling villagers out of their savings. The young couple sit stranded in a remote train station and as the night persists, the strange, cruel, and whimsical world of their homeland teaches them a lesson.
