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, life through a different lens. Hands of Color boldly asks the question, is redemption possible?

This production contains mature themes and strong language. Recommended ages 15+.
