Yellowman by Dael Orlandersmith

When: Fri., Jan. 13 2012

When Wednesday, 8 February 2012 at 07:30 until Sunday, 19 February 2012 at 15:00 Description 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 raises obstacles that become insurmountable. Exposing both harsh realities and tender yearnings, the play focuses in this internalized prejudice and explores how easily we become what we most dislike about our parents, and the pain that arises when our bodies do not match our desires.
