Barry's play, a semi-autobiographical comedic drama, “brilliantly captures the goofy sweet-seriousness of kids on the brink of adulthood. I hope the audience will laugh a lot and maybe cry a little too. It's just that kind of play,” director and theatre arts Prof. Susan Russell said. “I call it a 'poignant comedy'. The two main characters, Edna and Bonna, are twelve-year-old girls, and as such, they do a lot of goofy kid things. But it's also poignant because they're trying to negotiate the world of the mid-1960s when society is being rocked by forces way larger than themselves.”
