Pink Milk is very loosely based on the life of Alan Turing, a British mathematician known for creating the Turing Machine, the precursor to our modern day computers.

Our Alan is lonely, gay, a genius, Snow White obsessed. As a young boy, he builds a robot to help him make his bed. He plays field hockey at his prep school but is more interested in talking to the daisy sitting in the middle of the field. His mother supports him but can't understand why he wants to dress up like a princess. His father wants to take him hunting, but Alan would rather teach his robot new tricks. As a teenager, he is heart broken when the love of his life, Christopher, dies. In his life, Alan faces nosebleeds, curious boys, war, a ghost, and finally Arnold, who causes his life to spiral out of control.

Through movement, poetry, music and projections Pink Milk will be an experience which explores a new rich fantasy world while navigating themes from our own.
