New York Premiere: MILK LIKE SUGAR
October 13 - November 27, 2011
Peter Jay Sharp Theater

The Women's Project and La Jolla Playhouse present the New York Premiere of a play by Kirsten Greenidge. Featuring Cherise Boothe, Angela Lewis, Nikiya Mathis, LeRoy McClain, J. Mallory McCree, and Adrienne C. Moore. Scenic Design by Mimi Lien. Costume Design by Toni-Leslie James. Lighting by Justin Townsend. Sound Design by Andre Pleuss. Directed by Rebecca Taichman (The Scene; Orlando).

With potential for more but nowhere to put it, sixteen-year-old Annie's got a choice: honor the pregnancy pact she’s made with her friends, or find the path to a brighter future. In this searing, sharply observant new play, Kirsten Greenidge (pictured) finds savage humor and gritty poetry in one inner-city girl's struggle to carve out a life beyond the only one she knows.

"A must-see! Truthfully balances street with sweet, to entertaining, illuminating, and nourishing effect." --
David C. Nichols, Los Angeles Times
