In London For One Day Only: For Colored Girls.

The Obie-Award winning 'For Colored Girls Who Have Considered Suicide When the Rainbow is Enuf' is a choreopoem originally written by poet and playwright Ntozake Shange. Since its first stage in 1975, 'For Colored Girls' has been adapted as a book and a film by Tyler Perry, featuring a cast including Whoopi Goldberg, Phylicia Rashad, Thandie Newton and Kerry Washington. 

A landmark piece in African-American literature and black feminism, 'For Colored Girls' depicts the interconnected lives of nine women and their struggles as women of colour.

'For Colored Girls' produced by Justina Kehinde and Ifeyinwa Frederick made history in Cambridge University's 800 years history with its all-female, all-black cast. 

The production was a success, resulting in a sell-out performance, standing ovation and five-star reviews.

'For Colored Girls' is coming to London for one day only. With its rave reviews and history making, this play is not to be missed!
