THURSDAY, MAY 25
THE RIALTO THEATRE
1000 Kenmore Boulevard | Akron, Ohio
Yellow chronicles a year in the life of the perfect family in Vicksburg, Mississippi. Bobby Westmoreland, a high school football coach, and his wife Kate, a respected therapist, have two ambitious children in high school. Their son Dayne is the golden football star while their daughter Gracie is an overly-dramatic actress. Gracie’s best friend is a young gay boy, Kendall, who is at constant odds with his abusive, fundamentalist mother, Sister Timothea. The play opens with the start of the football season and high school auditions for “Oklahoma.” Everything falls apart when an unexpected tragedy rocks the Westmoreland family to the breaking point. Yellow explores the themes of cowardice, intolerance and the damage caused to families by secrets, rejection and the difficulty of forgiveness.
"The action of setting something on fire or starting to burn" -- Ignition
Each IGNITION staged reading will be a chamber of ideas for the future production of the play. Through lighting the fires of live theater the production begins to take form. The cast molds as an ensemble, the mood and tone take shape, the audience falls in love with the story, and the play begins to IGNITE.
The event is open to those 16 and over. Those under 21 will need to pay a small cover charge.
