About This Show

Nominated for the Pulitzer Prize in Drama in 2002, Yellowman is a celebration of language and the human spirit. It’s an exquisite and provocative exploration of racism within the Black community. Alma, a dark-skinned African-American woman, and her childhood friend Eugene, a light-skinned African-American man, have been life-long friends–yet when their friendship turns to love, the different colors of their skin raise obstacles that become insurmountable. Are we on the inside what we appear to be on the outside? Are we all ultimately victims of the biases and prejudices of our parents, our community, no matter what color our skin?
