Sky, Jello, and Twin have been friends since high school. Now in their 30s, they meet up on their local basketball court to talk trash and attempt to exorcize the demons that pursue them through their everyday lives.

True Colors looks forward to bringing this story back to the stage. This production was first seen in Atlanta on the stage of the 14th Street Playhouse (back then known as The Academy Theatre), where Tom Jones (Jello), Tony Vaughn (Twin) and our very own Kenny Leon (Sky) performed as in the 1988 Jomandi production.
