Abstract:

"When Garry Trudeau began his recent leave of absence, he took his comic strip characters with him, and when Doonesbury: A Musical Comedy opened on Broadway, a new chapter unfolded. When last seen in the strip, Uncle Duke was on ice in the slammer. In the play, an extraordinary courtroom drama brings him back to freedom, but he is ordered by the court to atone for his sins. The erstwhile ambassador brings this arm of the plot crashing into the other: the last days and swan song of Walden Commune, that long enduring student nest. Impending graduation and eviction combine to create a Doonesbury diaspora, as Mike, Mark, B.D., Boopsie, Zonker, and J.J are launched on new trajectories into life beyond college." -- Back cover
