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. Huntington Playwriting Fellow Kirsten Greenidge (Luck of the Irish) finds raw humor and gritty poetry in this provocative, ripped-from-the-headlines new play.

Approximate run time: 1 hour and 40 minutes without intermission. 

Please note, non-tobacco cigarettes are used in this production.
