Back to Past Productions


In a small Black town that doesn’t appear on any map, a young man is summoned back to run his family-owned general store. Past and present collide when four lost souls reunite, forcing Stacey Good to confront long buried feelings for Wire, his childhood best friend. Partnerships dissolve, alliances shift, and romances ignite as a tragic accident unleashes the town’s mysterious history. Blurring the line between body and spirit, GOOD GOODS is an otherworldly love story of the (dis)possessed.

“A little bit weird (in the most wonderful way) and a whole lot good, Christina Anderson’s Good Goods is a captivating drama that becomes a highly satisfying love story – or love stories to be exact.” Chad Jones, TheaterDogs

“If Tennessee Williams had been born black, he might have written a play like Christina Anderson’s “Good Goods,” receiving a stellar West Coast premiere by the ever-adventurous Crowded Fire Theater.” Jeanne Schiffman, The Examiner
