About For Colored Girls Who Have Considered Suicide/When the Rainbow Is Enuf:

A groundbreaking work in modern American theater, For Colored Girls Who Have Considered Suicide/When the Rainbow is Enuf, returns to The Public for the first time since it premiered in 1976, before its breakthrough run on Broadway. Filled with passion, humor, and raw honesty, legendary playwright/poet Ntozake Shange’s form-changing choreopoem tells the stories of seven women of color using poetry, song, and movement. With unflinching honesty and emotion, each woman voices her survival story of having to exist in a world shaped by sexism and racism. This seminal work speaks to our world today about women’s struggles, strength, desires, resilience, and the sanctified magic of love and possibility.
