It's election night 2016.
An entire country holds its breath.
Except for Vera, who has to focus on breathing.
That's what everyone keeps telling her: breathe, breathe, breathe.
She's in the hospital, giving birth to a baby boy - and she has no idea that America just lost its mind.
Over the course of one seemingly unending year, tensions mount between Vera and her second-wave feminist mother, she struggles to connect physically with her husband, and her friendship with her Syrian-American best friend Amira falters.
In this surreal and fragmented play mimicking the experience of sleep-deprived new parents, the personal and the political spheres collide to push Vera to the point of exhaustion.
Raising a magnifying glass to the experience of being a new mother under Trump, Milk and Gall explores the terror of the mundane.
While everyone else is out marching, Vera's at home stuck to a breast pump.
2018 Theatre503 International Playwriting Award finalist Mathilde Dratwa holds up a microscope to the experience of being a new mother under Trump.
