Alma and Gene have grown up together. She dreams of a life beyond the confines of their small town. But when their friendship develops into something more serious, Gene’s fate becomes tragically intertwined with hers and they can’t escape the legacy of racism and the tensions within their own community.

Twenty years after it premiered and received a Pulitzer Prize nomination, Dael Orlandersmith’s Yellowman, set in the 1960s Deep South, is a moving and deeply pertinent play for now.

“Beautifully written… this is what theatre is all about” New York Post

“A beautiful coming-of-age tale... both heartwarming and ultimately heartbreaking” Variety

Diane Page returns to the OT to direct following her acclaimed “excellent revival” (Financial Times) of Athol Fugard’s Statements After An Arrest Under the Immorality Act as winner of the JMK Award.

★★★★★ “Exactly what theatre should be” Afridiziak on Statements After an Arrest Under the Immorality Act
