Being stuck in a dead-end town hasn’t diminished the dreams of 16-year old Annie and her friends. But when they decide to create their own future by entering into a life-changing pact together, Annie begins to question what she really wants. With savage humor and gritty poetry, Kirsten Greenidge’s new play explores the challenges of choosing between the safety of the life you know and the danger of the life you desire.
