of a young girl's coming of age were the friendships she forges inspire her in ways she's never before experienced or expected. Help her challenge the status quo. #TELLTHESTORY

March 2 – March 25, 2017
By Kirsten Greenidge

It is Annie Desmond’s sixteenth birthday and her friends have decided to help her celebrate in style, complete with a brand new tattoo. Before her special night is over, however, Annie and her friends enter into a life altering pact. When Annie tries to make good on her promise to her friends, she is forced to take a good look at the world that surrounds her. She befriends Malik, who promises a bright future, and Keera, whose evangelical leanings inspire Annie in a way her young parents have not been able to do. In the end Annie’s choices propel her onto an irreversible path in this story that combines wit, poetry, and hope.

“A distinctive view of a matter of vital currency, crisply delineated characters who reveal more layers as the play proceeds, richly funny vernacular dialogue… Milk Like Sugar delivers piercing glimpses of the way underachievement and unhappiness are passed down from generation to generation.” – The New York Times

“Kirsten Greenidge’s fast-talking, victim-taking New York debut.” – Entertainment Weekly

“The title refers to the sweet powdered milk that offers far more flavor than nutritional value. But the tart Milk Like Sugar offers plenty of both!” – The New York Post

I'm supporting MILK LIKE SUGAR - a story that asks us to challenge what opportunities are available to kids like mine, who are they available too, and what circumstances determine the path that each life shall take. This is a story that I believe needs to be told! 2 years ago
