    Sugar is a tightly-woven, suspenseful take on a subject that cannot get enough exposure. It will take your breath away. It needs to be produced everywhere.

    HOLY MOLY! I truly adore JENNIFER O'GRADY's work, and SUGAR was no exception. Pivoting on a dime, this short play has everything to start conversations with audience members - smart dialogue, appropriate tension, and a message that will punch everyone in the gut. BRAVO!

    Short and powerful. This play kept me guessing and hoping...really hoping.
