The company called ‘Milk Presents’, who are one of the ‘associate artist’ groups based at the loss making Point theatre, have secured the funding to finance their forthcoming offbeat production of ‘Blue Beard, A Fairytale for Adults’

According the Eastleigh Borough Council website:
Milk Presents fuses cabaret, low-tech inventions and live animation to rework and re-imagine classic tales that explore themes of gender and sexuality.
The Point’s Associate Artist scheme is part of the theatre’s ‘Domicile Project’, which creates opportunities for little known companies from outside the borough to be sponsored by Eastleigh’s council tax payers.
Eastleigh News recently revealed that the council has bailed out the Point to the tune of £354,000 so far this financial year.
It great to know while so jobs and services are being cut and welfare benefits are being squeezed that both the council and government can still afford to be so generous to wacky art projects.
