Play Receives Thumbs Up

Mustard Seed Theatre's current production, "The Good Times Are Killing Me," received a positive review from the St. Louis Post-Dispatch's theater critic, Judy Newmark.

Mustard Seed, a professional theatre company in-residence at Fontbonne's Black Box Theatre, is lead by Dr. Deanna Jent, Fontbonne professor and director of theater. The play tells the story of a friendship between 12-year-old girls Edna and Bonna during the turbulent and racially divided 1960s. Jent's direction of the play captured Newmark's attention. "Deanna Jent addresses even the most disturbing subjects in straightforward style," Newmark wrote. She also wrote that Jent shows off "an array of vivid child characters while the actors who play adults take supporting roles."

"The Good Times Are Killing Me" runs until May 3.
