YELLOWMAN is a memory play that follows the tragically intertwined love story between Alma, a large, dark-skinned black woman and Eugene, a tall, light-skinned black man from childhood to adulthood. Taking place in the Gullah community in South Carolina in the 1960s, this poetically charged play examines intra-racial discrimination, cyclical abuse, class, alcoholism and racism. Contains mature themes, violence and strong language.
Project1voice is a not-for-profit performing arts service organization, based in New York City, dedicated to the promotion and support of Black theater and playwrights. YELLOWMAN will be performed at multiple venues across the county on this day.
YELLOWMAN is being presented with special permission granted by Dramatic Play Services, INC.
