Buy Tickets Now: for colored girls who have considered suicide ...

Eight ladies speak their piece about being women, being "colored", and staying alive. Their monologues and scenes are twenty-one poems that deal with love, loss, courage, despair, anger, humour, and joy. Each lady wears a colour, and their voices make a prism that shines light on what it means to live full, joyful lives in a world that is still plagued with racism, sexism, cruelty and violence.

This play will open the new Black Box Theatre, located behind the Dundas Theatre in the old rehearsal hall. Seating is limited!

Friday July 18 (special premiere night - $40) - Sunday July 20, and again Thursday July 24 - Saturday July 26.

Directed by Nicolette Bethel. Featuring Claudette "Cookie" Allens, Onike Archer, Aleah Carey, Michaella Forbes, Erin Knowles, Arthellia Isaacs, Myra McPhee, and Theresa Moxey-Ingraham. Choroeography and movement by Lawrence Carroll.

Special note:
For this production, The Black Box Theatre at the Dundas will seat only 80 people for each performance. Because of the design of the space no one will be seated after the performance begins. Tickets are non-refundable so please be in your seat before 8:00pm
