GREATER MANCHESTER FRINGE PRESENTS:

SOUR MILK

Red Brick Theatre are an emerging new theatre company from Salford/Manchester, recently graduated from the University of Salford. Comprised of theatre makers, actors, and technicians, Red Brick Theatre are committed to collaboration and creation as a group of peers and friends. The company are excited to present Sour Milk to the Greater Manchester Fringe this September.

Sour Milk is a heartfelt kitchen-sink drama traversing the effects of the AIDS epidemic in 1980's Manchester. This original play by Red Brick Theatre explores the relationship between two queer friends, Mark and Ange, who seem inseparable. We see the effects of new relationships, envy, and miscommunication placing strain on their relationship at a turbulent time for the queer community in Manchester.

Set in Ange's one bedroom apartment atop a chippy, the limits of the duo's relationships are pushed. Their regular lives of cynicism, promiscuity and monotony are flipped upside down by a life changing event.

How do you make someone accept themselves? How do you find the words to tell someone you love them? How can you be happy when you're alone?
