    An Evening with Playwright Kirsten Greenidge

    The work of Obie award-winning playwright Kirsten Greenidge examines race and class in the myriad ways they manifest themselves in American culture. Ms Greenidge teaches playwriting at Boston University and is a resident playwright at New Dramatists in New York City. She received the 2012 Obie award for Milk Like Sugar, a play about three teenage girls who make a pregnancy pact. Her 2012 play The Luck of the Irish enjoyed an extended run at the Huntington Theater Company and was staged at Lincoln Center's Claire Tow theater earlier this year. This work was inspired by the experiences of her black grandparents when they moved to a predominantly white Boston suburb in the 1960s. Join Kirsten Greenidge as she returns to her hometown of Arlington to discuss her work and the joys and challenges of placing underrepresented voices on stage. This program is a presentation of Arlington Community Education and is co-sponsored by the Arlington Advocate and Robbins Library.
