Description

From its inception in California in 1974 to its highly acclaimed critical success at Joseph Papp’s 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, Shange’s 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.

Customer Reviews

Two thumbs up

Extremely quick and easy read. Blurs the lines of poems just enough to drive home the point that no one set of circumstances is so different from another's that there isn't at least an area of overlap. This indicates to me that each struggle however unique is relatable to another and their struggle. Darkness of prose with hints of light make clear the struggles of women. Great read and I'll read it again...and again...and yet again.
