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


  • Court Theatre 5535 S. Ellis Avenue Chicago, IL United States (map)

“A triumphant event, filled with humor. Pure theatre.” —New York Daily News  

“A poignant, gripping, angry and beautiful work.” —Time

A sisterhood of eight women tell their stories through dramatic prose poetry, music, and movement. Told in vivid language, their experiences resound with fearless beauty and unity, despite exposing the unending challenges and oppressions that women of color face every day.

Director Seret Scott (Native Son) returns to playwright Ntozake Shange‘s cherished work after performing as a member of the original Broadway cast from 1976-1978. She will inspire new audiences with this series of stories that still resonate profoundly forty years later.
