      If getting the most out of the least is any indicator, Alfred Uhry is the most successful playwright in American history.

The Last Night of Ballyhoo is a perfect example of the inner workings of a prejudice person. There are two psychological elements displayed here that are more related than most people realize. The prejudice theme is obvious throughout the play.
