A fresh and surprising new musical anchored inside the memory of a Michigan backyard on the bank of the Kawkawlin River, A Ride On The Irish Cream rushes forth from the mind of celebrated cabaret and performance artist Erin Markey. A live band and swath of carpet become the space for the thrills and terrors of a relationship between Reagan (Markey), a vainglorious self-made girl, and Irish Cream (Becca Blackwell), her family's pontoon boat/horse.

On Saturday February 25, there will be a post-performance discussion led by Holly Hughes.
