About the Play

An unexpected encounter, deep-rooted prejudice and an ill-fated phone call lands Thomas in Robert’s family … and a new identity. This funny and powerful new play examines what it's like when your world is turned upside down and you are forced to look at life through a different lens.

"Hands of Color" boldly asks the question, is redemption possible?
