The Milkman Cometh – The Vault Festival, London

Writers: Alice Bounce, Maxwell Tyler and Owen Jenkins Director:  Katherine Timms Reviewer:  Richard Maguire Definitely the strangest show to appear in The Vault Festival’s opening week, The Milkman Cometh is the bastard child of The Wicker Man and Barbarella.
