For Colored Girls Who Have Considered Suicide/When the Rainbow is Enuf

By Ntozake Shange

Directed by Jessie Umu Vander, USM Theatre Alum

December 9th-12th, 2019 

In commemoration of the loss of the acclaimed African-American playwright, poet, author and performer, Nzotake Shange (1948 -2018), we are honored to present a special staged-reading of her seminal work. Nominated for the 1977 Tony Award for Best Play and described by Shange as a “choreopoem”, this influential piece shares stories of love, loss, empowerment and sisterhood. Presented with support from the Warren Memorial Foundation, this piece will feature current USM students and alumni.
