Callaloo Theater announces auditions for
Milk Like Sugar
by Kirsten Greenidge
directed by Karen Christina Jones
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.
“Milk Like Sugar‘s remarkable features include its locale, an urban, African-American subworld that displays, for once, neither the brutalizing cliches of a poverty-stricken ghetto nor the discomfiting artificiality of a talented-tenth safe haven. Instead, Greenidge populates her story with a sampling of the innumerable young people between those extremes.” – The Village Voice
