March 29, 30, 31: Dear Bobby: The Musical tells the story of two teen girls—one black, one Jewish—who anticipate the arrival of Bobby Kennedy to Indianapolis for very different reasons. This was a moment in history when everyone had to decide whether to stand separately or, in the words of Bobby Kennedy, “make an effort, as Martin Luther King did, to understand.” The world premiere of Dear Bobby will run as part of ONYXFest, IndyFringe’s annual festival celebrating African American playwrights.
