Students from Augustana College will put on a play in Milwaukee Thursday. "A Green River" was performed on campus last year, then was chosen for this year's regional festival of the Kennedy Center American College Theater Festival. 

Jeff Coussens, chair of the college's Theater Arts Department, says it's about a returning soldier, suffering from post traumatic stress syndrome.
Written by local playwright Aaron Randolph III, it was first performed by the Quad City Theater Workshop. For its production, Augustana brought in alumnus and Broadway director, Phi McKinley.  

Coussens says nearly all of the actors from last year's production, and the set, will make the trip to Milwaukee for Thursday night's performance.
"A Green River" is one of just seven plays chosen for the regional festival.
