FOR COLORED GIRLS WHO HAVE CONSIDERED SUICIDE WHEN THE RAINBOW IS ENUF to Play ArtsCentric, 7/26-28

For Colored Girls Who Have Considered Suicide When The Rainbow is Enuf will run at ArtsCentric from July 26-28, 2013 in the Garland Theater at 300 Garrison Forest Road, Owings Mills, MD. Tickets are $20. Click HERE to order online.

Structurally, For Colored Girls is a series of 20 poems, collectively called a 'choreopoem.' Shange's poetry expresses the many struggles and obstacles that African-American women face throughout their lives. It is performed by a cast of seven women characters, each of whom is known only by a color: "Lady in Yellow," "Lady in Purple," etc.

The poems deal with love, abandonment, rape, and abortion, embodied by each woman's story. For example, Lady in Blue's visceral account of a woman who chooses to have an abortion, and Lady in Red's tale of domestic violence. The end of the play brings together all of the women for a "laying on of hands," in which Shange evokes the power of womanhood as the Lady in Red begins the mantra "I found God in myself/and I loved her/I loved her fierce."

A portion of the proceeds will benefit House of Ruth Maryland. You can also bring in an item from House of Ruth's wish list that will directly benefit women and children in need. A donation dropbox will be available at the box office during performances. To view the current list, click HERE.
