Alike is a 17-year-old African American woman who lives with her family in Brooklyn’s Fort Greene neighborhood. She has a flair for poetry and is a good high-school student. Alike is quietly but firmly embracing her identity as a lesbian. With the support of Laura—her sometimes-boisterous best friend and out-lesbian—Alike is especially eager to find a girlfriend. At home, her parents’ marriage is strained, and there is further tension around Alike’s sexuality. Unsure as to how much she can confide in her family, she strives to get through adolescence with grace, humor, and tenacity. (2K DCP Presentation)
