YELLOWMAN by Dael Olandersmith
The 2017 Project1VOICE One Play One Day staged reading series selection.
YELLOWMAN is a memory play with two actors playing all the parts. The play 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. YELLOWMAN takes place in the Gullah community in South Carolina in the 1960s. It poetically examines intra-racial discrimination, cyclical abuse, class, alcoholism and racism.
YELLOWMAN contains mature themes, brief violence and strong language.
