For Colored Girls Who Have Considered Suicide /
When the Rainbow is Enuf

Written by Ntozake Shange
Directed by Munyaradzi Guramatunhu
Associate Director Shanti Gonzales

‘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.

With direction from Shanti Gonzales, these six very unique women (Keren Roberts, Nelly Zarfi, Inès Vieux Francoeur, Jamila Joseph, Benita Bailey & Lorna Kidjo) who represent the global African diaspora, bring life and love to Shange’s words/work.
