ABOUT THE PLAY:
Vengeance and greed blind the citizens of Hood:14542, during a harsh awakening of the gentrification epidemic.
Yellow Man faces infamy as he returns to rehabilitate the hood. While his equally stubborn brother and other neighborhood dwellers are determined to save it.
Race, ego, lust, and blood rule this play in an impassioned debate of community and opportunity.
