THEATRE: for coloured girls

for colored girls who have considered suicide / when the rainbow is enuf

‘for colored girls’ brilliantly shows how important and essential a sisterhood and the conversations – or lack thereof – within it can be, often culminating in a hot pot of laughs and tears through song, dance and poetry. Written back in 1974, yet it still holds a valuable space in our current climate, playwright Ntozake Shange flings you into the world of a group of women who are finally stepping into their own voices by sharing their life experiences and the dilemma that comes with being a “sista”, what that looks like, the misconceptions around it and the magic that can be conjured when black women come together for healing.

Written by Ntozake Shange • Directed by Munyaradzi Guramatunhu • Associate Director Shanti Gonzales • Set and costumes designed by Nalo Soyini Bruce
