- Directed by Karen Paisley, For Colored Girls Who Have Considered Suicide When the Rainbow is Enuf opens February 20 at Metropolitan Ensemble Theatre for a three week run, ending March 10. The Tony Award-nominated and Obie Award-winning play by Ntozake Shange premiered on Broadway in 1976 and was the inspiration for Tyler Perry’s 2010 film, For Colored Girls. Synopsis: Known as a “choreopoem” the play consists of 20 poems woven into a magnetic collection of love, abandonment, rape, abortion and domestic violence experienced by African-American women. For Colored Girls weaves lush movement and graceful verse into a truly stirring portrait of seven amazing black women trapped in their sex, color and consciousness. Each woman’s journey is unique, yet each seamlessly blends with the stories of the other six women to form one, united voice of pride and power. The play is performed by a cast of seven women characters, each referred to only as a color, “Lady in Yellow” etc.
