"A radical message in a populist show, wringing new meanings from an ancient myth."

What's on Stage


“I am a bull. I am a bull…ish. I live between worlds. Slip between myths with dexterous leaps. Do I scare you? How about now?” 

Meet Asterion, better known as the terrifying, blood thirsty Minotaur of Ancient Crete. Follow them through one cabaret odyssey, one strapping search for the man they might want to be.

From the makers of smash hit JOAN (Off West End, Fringe First and Stage Award winner) Milk Presents bring you BULLISH. BULLISH pits ancient mythology against modern gender navigation to furiously disrupt, traverse and rewrite the rulebook. Stepping into the ring with a gender fierce ensemble of hopers and renegades, BULLISH is a story about packing, passing, and gambling your way out of the labyrinth. 

A new mythical play with songs, negotiating ancient and new territories in trans-masculine gender and identity. This show drops a proverbial bull into a china shop and hopes it breaks everything.

BULLISH premiered to a sell-out London run headlining ‘Come As You Are’ festival, the first festival celebrating trans, non-binary and gender-queer theatre.

The show was commissioned by the Camden People's Theatre Home Run Commission, through the Jerwood Charitable Foundation, and has also received support from the Arts Council England, Derby Theatre and The Bush Theatre.
