Award-winning playwright Del Shores is best known for his campy Southern tales, but Yellow pushes drama and family relationships to the front. Set in Vicksburg, Mississippi, the play chronicles a year in the life of what seems to be the perfect family whose foundations are rocked to the breaking point by an unexpected tragedy. Hard-hitting and still surprisingly funny, Yellow dives head-first into the themes of cowardice, intolerance and the damage caused to families by secrets, rejection and the difficulty of forgiveness.

Wonderful set design, engaging actors and a timeless tale of love. I thought all three lead actors were excellent. Because of the blond/brunette casting, I went home thoroughly convinced that Hugh Grant had played Maurice since I hadn't seen the film in nearly 25 years. From the writing and the scene structure, this did seem as though it was based on the film rather than the novel at times. And some of the direction was quite odd. I attended a preview so things might change. Still really enjoyed it but some editing could be used.

- "An unusually well-tuned New Conservatory production under director George Maguire ... <em>Maurice</em> triumphs, with Forster's radical notion - given the times - that a man could learn to embrace and enjoy his homosexuality." --<a target="_blank" href="http://www.sfgate.com/cgi-bin/article.cgi?f=/c/a/2012/03/05/DDNQ1NDLER.DTL"><em>San Francisco Chronicle</em></a>
