Metal. Mayhem. Milk.

DeadPlant Theatre’s grotesque comedy horror ‘The Milkman Cometh’ is sure to get udder your skin. Metal band Fuck Slurry join them, performing the original score and soundtrack live on stage. "I can still hear the moos when I close me eyes. Burned alive poor buggers. Little did I know they were the lucky ones."

In a not too distant bleak and milkless future, a lone warrior woman arrives in the village of Cud seeking fellow survivors and shelter. But this village is inhabited by a band of mason-like milky brothers, and is full of dark secrets. For they still have a milkman, and the milk still cometh.

After last year’s sell out run of ‘The Service’ at the London Horror Festival, DeadPlant return with another surreal and nightmarish fable for the ages, exploring the damaging effect cattle farming has had on our environment and highlighting the horrors of the dairy industry. The show flips gender stereotypes on their head and features a kickass heroine who will stop at nothing to beat the pasteurised patriarchy. The Milkman Cometh blends storytelling, physical theatre and puppetry, and captures DeadPlant's signature silly style. Come meet the Milkman. IF...YOU... Dairy.
