You’re Good for Nothing… I’ll Milk the Cow Myself

March 1 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm


France, 1981: The first socialist president is about to be elected and young Natacha is ready to launch a revolution. But first, she has to take down the schoolyard bully, emasculate the rules of French grammar, and make off with grandma’s chocolate.I’LL MILK THE COW MYSELF tells the story of three generations of women, facing three world wars, but it will make you want to join in dancing, singing, drinking vodka, and eating chopped liver (vodka and liver not provided).

If you think you know the limits of Jewish mothers, evil grandmothers, and transcontinental love, meet Natacha Ruck’s family, equal parts charming, shocking and zany, in this thoroughly original true tale of belonging.
Writer / Performer Natacha Ruck
