for colored girls who have considered suicide/when the rainbow is enuf
By Ntozake Shange
Directed by Sarah Bellamy and Lou Bellamy
Choreography by Ananya Chatterjea
This 1974 classic which Ntozake Shange called a choreopoem, was conceived just two years before Penumbra Theatre was born. From its humble creation to critical acclaim on Broadway, the Obie Award-winning play has excited, inspired, and transformed audiences across the country. Shange’s fearless prose vividly paints intimate portraits of the pain and jubilation that women of color experience from girlhood throughout life. Shange was groundbreaking in her efforts to shatter the silence that protected abusers of women. for colored girls is a brave reckoning, a celebration, a healing ceremony, and perhaps most profoundly, an example of the awesome power a chorus of women’s voices can have.
