WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

A finalist for the 2003 Pulitzer Prize for Drama, Yellowman is the story of Alma and Eugene, lifelong friends who find themselves falling in love, but the different shades of their skin raise obstacles that may be insurmountable. Alma struggles to free herself from poverty, while Eugene must contend with the legacy of being "yellow"-- lighter-skinned than his brutal and unforgiving father. Two actors bring to life these characters, their schoolmates and families, and their entire South Carolina world, in this story of overcoming the past and learning to look deeper than the skin.
