Yellow, the latest play by award-winning playwright Del Shores, chronicles a year in the life of what seems to be the perfect family in Vicksburg, Mississippi. Bobby Westmoreland (Jeff Plunk) is a high school football coach, and his wife Kate (Kristen McCullough) is a respected therapist. They have two ambitious children in high school; their son Dayne (Justin Duncan) is the golden child and football star while their daughter Gracie (Zoe Kerr) is an aspiring actress who feels misunderstood at all times. Gracie’s best friend is a young gay boy, Kendall (Grant Bower), who shares her affinity for the theatre which puts him at odds with his abusive, fundamentalist mother, Sister Timothea (Deborah Jones).
As the play opens, all seems right in the Westmoreland household. Dayne prepares for the start of football season, and Gracie and Kendall audition to join the cast of the high school production of “Oklahoma.” Everything quickly begins to fall apart when an unexpected tragedy rocks the solid foundation of the Westmoreland family to the breaking point. Yellow dives head first into the themes of cowardice, intolerance and the damage caused to families by secrets, rejection and the difficulty of forgiveness. A departure from the intense comedy of earlier works, Yellow is Shores' most dramatic play to date.
