The sexuality of the deep South and a marionette of Pinocchio fill the days and nights of Morning Milking Evening Milking running Nov. 3-21 at Irish Arts Theater. Playwright Jim Farmer directs Farmer's Milking follows a family of four falling apart on a Louisiana plantation in the heat of the 1950's South. While Cat, the pregnant daughter of strong but haunted Papa and the fragile Mama, survives her marriage to the brutal, sexual Johnny-Lee, he grows closer to becoming a murderer.
A film composer whose movies have included "The Real Blonde," "Living in Oblivion," and "Johnny Suede," Farmer wrote the plays Yonder Window Breaks and I've Been Drunk for Three Days and I Have a Gun along with the musicals Frontier Halloween, Pistols and Stamens and When Existential Things Happen to Good People.
Jane Grenier, Wilbur Edwin Henry, Trina Wilson and Rob Corddry are the cast.
