Fleetwood-Jourdain Theatre's "For Colored Girls..." Opens June 8
"For Colored Girls Who Have Considered Suicide When the Rainbow is Enuf" by Ntozake Shange is series of 20 poems, collectively called a “chorepoem,” which expresses the many struggles and obstacles that African-American women face throughout their lives.
Fueled with eloquent words that dance rhythmically to humor and pathos, irony and poignancy, For Colored Girls will move you seamlessly from laughter to tears and back again. A brilliant cast of some of Evanston’s and Chicagoland’s finest talent has been assembled. For more information, visit www.cityofevanston.org/fjtheatre
