The Good Times Are Killing Me

This autobiographical comic drama by the noted cartoonist about growing up in an interracial neighborhood in the 1960s enjoyed a very successful Off-Broadway run. Twelve-year-old best friends, one black and one white, stand by each other through upheaval and tragedy, in spite of each family’s disapproval. Racial peer pressure eventually drives a wedge between Edna and Bonna. Interspersed are songs of the sixties, some heard on the Victrola others performed by the cast.

September 24-26 and October 1-3, 1999 – Fisher Theater, Ames
