FEATURES / CONTAINS

Unit Set/Multiple Settings

This autobiographical comic drama by a noted cartoonist about growing up in an interracial neighborhood in the 1960s enjoyed a long Off Broadway run.

However, racial peer pressure eventually drives a wedge between the girls. Interspersed are songs of the period, some heard on the Victrola and others performed by the spirited cast.
