After five star reviews and breaking history in Cambridge, Justina Kehinde and Ifeyinwa Frederick are bringing Ntozake Shange’s For Colored Girls [Who Have Considered Suicide When The Rainbow is Enuf] to London for one night only.
The play, a choreopoem originally written by Ntozake Shange, will be staged at the Canada Water Culture Space on Friday, September 13, 7.30pm – followed by a Q&A with the cast and crew hosted by Hannah Pool.
The original Cambridge run of the play directed and produced by Kehinde challenged the local theatrical norms by having the first all-black, all female cast ever on a Cambridge stage. The power and creativity of the performance resulted in standing ovations, a sell-out performance and five stars reviews. After such a successful run, Kehinde and Frederick are bringing the play to London.
The cast includes JUSTINA KEHINDE OGUNSEITAN (lady in blue), IFEYINWA FREDERICK (lady in orange), LOLIA ETOMI (lady in purple), NAOMI MAXWELL (lady in green), STEPHANIE GOULEI (lady in brown), TASILA BANDA (lady in red) and ISABEL ADOMAKOH YOUNG (lady in yellow).
