The Life and Death of John the Milkman (Produced by: The Proscenium Club)
Written and Directed by Joshua Bainbridge
About the play:
In the summer of 1959, in a little suburban town, in a very ordinary kitchen, four “regular” housewives find themselves in a very irregular situation, but how hard can it be to dispose of a dead body? This dark comedy follows the lives of four women trapped within the constraints of social expectations. How relatable can relationships from 1959 be to ones today? Perhaps more than you may expect. This is a story about four women who are ready to claim their rights, their identities, and their own independence, at any cost. This show contains mature themes and content. This show con...tains the smoking of herbal cigarettes.

About Proscenium Club
Proscenium Club has been active in the Northern theatre scene for the past few years working in various capacities. After formalizing in 2016, Proscenium Club conducted their first project I Live with Him Every Day, which presented at 3 different venues in rural areas of Ontario as a pilot to establish interest in future tours. Director Joshua Bainbridge, who founded Proscenium Club, has been writing and producing his own works since 2010 after graduating from Canadore College’s Theatre Arts program. Seeing a shortage of new theatrical works emerging from Northern Ontario, he brought together several passionate like-minded artists to form a self-sufficient professional theatre company to create and produce new Canadian works. The Life and Death of John the Milkman will be the first formalized tour by this emerging theatre troupe.
