4th Wall Theatre will celebrate Black History Month with a one-night play reading: for colored girls who have considered suicide when the rainbow is enuf by Ntozake Shange ​directed by Gwen Ricks-Spencer Thursday, February 16, 2017 at 7:30 pm A black woman explores seven facets of herself and emerges a stronger person in Ntozake Shange's "choreo-poem."​ The piece is a series of 20 separate poems choreographed to music that weaves interconnected stories of love, empowerment, struggle and loss into a complex representation of sisterhood. The cast consists of seven nameless African-American women only identified by the colors they are assigned. Shange wrote for colored girls.... in a way that mimicked how real women spoke so she could draw her readers' focus to the experience of reading and listening. The show was nominated for a Tony Award in 1976. tickets: http://www.4thwalltheatre.org/for-colored-girls Group rates available for groups of 15 or more. ​Please email us at info@4thwalltheatre.org or call 973-996-8484.
