Release begins: What does it cost the world to see beauty in a black woman?

  • On Monday 11th September 2017, Croydon award winning salon, Josh Hair and Beauty, will be hosting Yellowbone, a new stage play, exploring skin bleaching. Yellowbone follows the life of a young African woman who undergoes humiliation that makes her detest the colour of her skin and believe her skin colour is the reason for her predicament.

Yellowbone is a community-based theatre project with a strong interest in issues around beauty for women of colour. Yellowbone educates and raises concerns about the lack of public health awareness around skin bleaching in the black community.

Yellowbone will be produced at a beauty salon in the heart of Croydon to provide an opportunity to an audience which may have less access to theatre to take part in the experience. Rather than the audience going to a theatre space, writer and producer Samantha Dube has chosen to brings theatre to people in a space they normally use for a very different purpose, giving them an opportunity to examine the feelings they may hold.

Release ends.

Release sender: Yellowbone Productions.

Yellowbone will be performed on Monday 11th September at Josh Hair and Beauty, 95 Church Street, Croydon CR0 1RN at 4:30pm and again at 7:30pm. Its running time is around thirty minutes. Space is limited, so to reserve a seat please click
