Queer Shorts – A trio of audio plays from Milk Presents

Alongside Shark Week Milk Presents brings a trio of short audio plays, written by Prime Isaac, Jo Tyabji and Leo Skilbeck all exploring queerness in unique ways. 

Sit down with a cuppa (or cocktail) and turn up the speakers or pop on your headphones as Milk Presents bring you poignant, joyous and celebratory queer words and worlds. 

We’ve got you.

Do you want me to kiss you whilst you pray? Do you want me to kiss you harder whilst you pray? Two queers interrogate queerness, desire and God, before hustling to strike a deal with heaven. Originally developed as part of the Young Vic’s ‘5 plays’ series. 

In Real Life 
Written and Directed by Jo Tyabji
Performed by Arun Blair Mangat

Jay’s the kind of gay that doesn’t like to make a big deal about it, until he spots a couple of queers he just can’t work out… can he tune his gaydar without setting it off himself? 

Said Out Loud 
Written by Prime Isaac
Directed by Jo Tyabji

She’s got a lot to say, she’s semi sober and the sun is about to come up, will she be able to say it all out loud before the clock strikes 6?
