About This Show

Dael Orlandersmith’s Pulitzer Prize-nominated play, Yellowman tells the powerfully engaging tale of Alma, a dark-skinned African-American woman, and her childhood friend Eugene, a light-skinned African-American man, growing up together and yearning to escape the South. With dreams about reinventing their lives, they painfully learn that skin color divides even the closest of friends and communities. The play takes a harsh look at the realities of internal racism and explores the ways that the sins of the past become the legacy of the future.
