Highland Arts Theatre Presents
TAKE D MILK, NAH
Written and Performed by Jivesh Parasram
Dartmouth performer returns to the East Coast with his Governor General Award-nominated play!
Take d Milk, Nah? is a funny, fresh, and skeptical take on the identity play, where performer-playwright Jivesh Parasram blends personal storytelling and ritual to offer the Hin-dos and Hin-don’ts within the intersections of all of his highly hyphenated cultures. Jiv is “Canadian.” And “Indian.” And “Hindu.” And “West Indian.” “Trinidadian,” too. Or maybe he’s just colonized.
Parasram grew up in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia and is Artistic Director of Rumble Productions in Vancouver, BC. Take d Milk, Nah? debuted in 2020 and has been performed at the National Arts Centre, Theatre Passe Muraille, and several other theatres throughout Central and Western Canada. The play was published by Playwrights Canada Press in 2021 and nominated for the Governor General’s Award in Playwriting in 2022.
Presented with assistance from Canadian Heritage and in partnership with Rumbles Productions, Theatre New Brunswick, Festival Antigonish Summer Theatre, and Eastern Front Theatre
