The Obie Award-winning for colored girls who have considered suicide/when the rainbow is enuf has excited, inspired, and transformed audiences all over the country. From its inception in California in 1974 to its New York production at the New Federal Theatre and subsequent co-production with Joseph Papp’s Public Theater and on Broadway, for colored girls… has become a highly acclaimed critical success. Passionate and fearless, Shange’s words reveal what it is to be of color and female in the twentieth century. First published in 1975 when it was praised by The New Yorker for “encompassing…every feeling and experience a woman has ever had,” for colored girls who have considered suicide/when the rainbow is enuf is a groundbreaking dramatic prose poem written in vivid and powerful language that resonates with unusual beauty in its fierce message to the world.

“For Colored Girls Who Have Considered Suicide/When the Rainbow is Enuf” is presented by special arrangement with SAMUEL FRENCH, INC.
