Most of us could use a little more theater in our lives. If you really only have time for a little, the one-act play Raisins in a Glass of Milk is a perfect option. The play is presented by Cornish College of the Arts, directed by Raf Molina, conceived by Maya Burton and written by Lexi Chipman. It opens with a preview this Thursday, August 25 at 8pm in the Cornish Playhouse, with two additional performances on August 26 and 27. It may be short, but Raisins in a Glass of Milk promises to be one unforgettable production. From Cornish.edu:
Raisins in a Glass of Milk is a one act play that brings the hilarious, heart-breaking and shocking stories and experiences of actors of color from across the country, out of the darkness and into the spotlight. Through this collection of scenes and monologues, we aim to show that People of Color should finally be seen as a standard, essential part of storytelling as opposed to stereotypes, controversies, and out of date statements.
