Publisher Comments:

From its inception in California in 1974 to its highly acclaimed critical success at Joseph Papps Public Theater and on Broadway, 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. Passionate and fearless, Shanges words reveal what it meant 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 will be read and performed for generations to come. Here is the complete text, with stage directions, of a groundbreaking dramatic prose poem written in vivid and powerful language that resonates with unusual beauty in its fierce message to the world.

Synopsis:

A movie-tie-in edition of Ntozake Shange's 1975 classic to coincide with the release of Tyler Perry's new movie starring Oprah Winfrey.
