Morning Milking Evening Milking, the premiere of Jim Farmer's new play, will close its run Nov. 21 at Irish Arts Theater. Performances began Nov. 3. Playwright 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.
