    We love women supporting women! SUGAR is a smart piece with powerful dialogue. Jaden's plan unravels skillfully to a beautiful conclusion...or shall I say a beautiful new beginning? Applause for O'Grady. Let's get this piece onstage!

    What a smart, important, gripping play. Playwright Jennifer O'Grady knocks it out of the park with Sugar, concocting a roller coaster ride with the highest urgency. Truly brilliant writing. It's getting lots of productions and awards and deservedly so! I would so love to see a production of this. Thought-provoking and so well-crafted.

    Sugar illuminates O'Grady's masterful storytelling. In this powerful ten-minute play, a gripping and urgent drama unfolds. I appreciate the way O'Grady set up the story and built to the climax of this piece. It's truly one of the best short plays I've read...and I'd love to see it performed. Thank you for this fine work.
