A Play, A Pie and A Pint – Milkshake by Rob Drummond
A right wing politician and a left wing activist meet in a court mandated restorative justice session after an unfortunate incident involving a strawberry milkshake. When the moderator doesn’t show they take it upon themselves to conduct the session without supervision. How difficult can it be? After all, it was only a milkshake. It’s not like anyone died.
