This groundbreaking work captures the brutal, tender and dramatic lives of contemporary Black women in relation to all women. For Colored Girls... offers a transformative, riveting evening of talent, message, and theatre.

Director Dee Quaranta and Co-Director Darryl ReuBen Hall found so much talent in the Jacksonville community that they've had to double-cast the production with alternating performances.
