UTNT (UT New Theatre) presents Milton, MI


UTNT 2018 graphic neon

By Paz Pardo
Directed by Adam L. Sussman

Leah's got writer's block, Amber's got ambition, Jake's got it all. Leah and Jake were once up-and-coming, hot-shot poets. Now Leah's working admin as Jake's career skyrockets, and slugs are eating the foundation of their house. When fresh-faced Amber shows up, it's only a matter of time before things get sticky. A play about threesomes, poetry and the failure to communicate.

Milton, MI contains mature content.
