For Colored Girls

For Colored Girls


Ntozake Shange’s For Colored Girls [Who Have Considered Suicide When the Rainbow is Enuf] is an innovative piece of theatre that combines poetry, dance, music and song to explore the experiences of seven Black women in the modern world.

The women are unnamed – instead, identified only by the colour of their clothing. Through interconnected poetic monologues, their personal stories of heartbreak, loss, joy and love are woven together.

By telling their stories the women are able to find themselves and each other, growing and healing together in this empowering celebration of Black women, of self-love and of sisterhood.
