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.

Reviews & Ratings
Alone, numb and friendless after the violent death of his father, high school senior Eli moves with his mom from San Francisco to a fresh start in Iowa. A new relationship with a boy at school exposes Eli again to the possibility of closeness and the danger of being swallowed by it.
"To me, the play is about reaching out. I had this really intense relationship for a long time, and that relationship—having someone love me and be there for me—was what sent me over the edge and really kind of crashed me out. The play is about that and the need to break that open in order to start to become healthy." --Daniel Talbott, Playwright
