Winner of the Obie Award for Playwriting, the Edgerton Foundation New American Play Award and the San Diego Critics Circle Craig Noel Award for Outstanding New Play, Kirsten Greenidge's new play provides "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

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.
