The Sun-Times Reviews Senn High School Students Performance in “Milk Like Sugar” at The Raven in Edgewater Glen

Milk Like Sugar

“Where will you find some of the most honest, moving, skillful acting on any Chicago stage at the moment?”

“… at Raven Theatre, where a remarkable company of (mostly) teenage actors … are performing Kirsten Greenidge’s play, Milk Like Sugar.”

“… the show is authentic in a way that it can only be when adolescents play themselves. But without reading the program bios you would never guess these young actors were not stage veterans. Credit also goes to the award-winning writer, Greenidge, who has injected tremendous heart, soul and pathos into her characters…
high school students who have little money, many family issues, a wide array of dreams, a hunger for consumer culture, and all the confusion about present temptations and future outcomes that are a product of their age and circumstances.” – Hedy Weiss, Chicago Sun-Times
