With potential for more but nowhere to put it, sixteen-year-old Annie's got a choice: honor the pregnancy pact she made with her friends, or find the path to a brighter future. In this searing, sharply observant new play, Kirsten Greenidge finds savage humor and gritty poetry in one inner-city girl's struggle to carve out a life beyond the only one she knows.
"Kirsten Greenidge's Milk Like Sugar is one of the WORKS OF ART for which 2011 will be remembered."
--Bob Verini, Variety
"A TERRIFIC CAST. The great Tonya Pinkins gives a SENSATIONAL, FRAME-BUSTING performance, biting into the humor with FEROCIOUS INTENSITY."
--Charles Isherwood, NY Times
"REMARKABLE, sweet-natured and warmly compassionate. Rebecca Taichman's production is a cool blend of daring and sensitivity. The acting is virtually FLAWLESS."
-- Michael Feingold, Village Voice
