Milk Like Sugar

Presented by Huntington Theatre Company | January 29 — February 29 at the Calderwood Pavilion at the BCA.

Annie and her teenage friends want the same things: the hottest new phones, cute boys, designer bags. But when they enter into a pregnancy pact, she wonders if there might be a different path and a brighter future. Playwright Fellow Kirsten Greenidge finds raw humor and gritty poetry in this provocative, ripped-from-the-headlines new play.

Reviews & Press

"It is, in fact, surprising how infectiously entertaining Milk Like Sugar, with its hip-hop transitions and joyful noises, can be when you want to weep for its feisty if misinformed young characters, whose opportunities are as stunted as their facts can be... Boldly and fluidly staged by Associate Producer M. Bevin O’Gara." — WBUR The ARTery

"A bittersweet portrait of a striving teen...M. Bevin O’Gara elicits vivid performances from her young cast." — The Boston Globe

Milk Like Sugar balances street with sweet, to entertaining and illuminating effect. A MUST SEE!”– Los Angeles Times
