Raisins in a Glass of Milk is back with an entirely new show! Raisins 2019 features new stories, new raisins... in the same old glass of milk. Performed by an ensemble of POC, Raisins brings the hilarious, heartbreaking and shocking events they have lived through out of the darkness and into the light. In this powerful new piece real stories are woven together from candid interviews with theater artists of color about their experiences auditioning, training, working and living in the world of theater right now.  

"Each vignette is well developed yet holds a raw intensity...presenting the stories of numerous POC in a deeply humanizing and poetic way." -Seattle Weekly Review of the first iteration of Raisins

Originally created in 2016 the first version of Raisins in a Glass of Milk was developed at Cornish College of the arts shared in venues all around the country. Live Girls! is now partnering with creators Lexi Chipman and Maya Burton who have joined the company as producing partners to bring this project to the stage in February 2019. They plan to present this project annually with sharing and retelling as many stories as possible and continuing to give a voice to the voiceless.
America is currently experiencing a cultural shift. We are seeing more representation on stage and in film. We are standing for black lives. We are marching for immigrant families. We are in the process of claiming seats in the house and Senate. The American tradition of institutionalized racism is beginning to crack. By directly telling more and more stories of People of Color, loudly, proudly, and without shame, we can make sure that this movement is not temporary, but creates permanent change. Raisins proves 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should finally be seen as a standard, essential part of storytelling, as opposed to stereotypes, controversies, and out of date statements.  Lexi Chipman and Maya Burton Creators of Raisins in a Glass of Milk
