Beautiful poetry that encompasses the experience of all women, as well as focusing specifically on various aspects of the African American experience. A quick read. ( )

that was different - it was confusing in parts - but in other parts it was super powerful and extremely strong ( )

I have to say that I loved this play. It was a bit weird to read the stage directions along with the poetry that was being said by these characters, but it was quite easy to read and follow.

For colored girls is considered a choreopoem (i.e. there are monologues that also include dance and music) with seven women in different colors speaking to the audience.

The seven women are the lady in red, lady in orange, lady in yellow, lady in green, lady in blue, lady in brown, and lady in purple.

Some of the poems really spoke to me a lot and the play tackles so many different subjects such as rape, abortion, domestic violence.

Some of the language was a bit harsh too. There were a lot of n words and some ethnic slurs in there too. I wouldn't recommend to those who may be easily offended and who may not want to read about some of the subjects of this play.

This one missed the mark for me. While there were some interesting passages in it, and the idea was inherently decent, I didn't feel connected with the characters. This, perchance, may be because the play was set in its time and I'm so disconnected from what it speaks of. It was not a bad play, and I think it has it's merits, but I also agree with the fact that it is not for all audiences-- myself included.

2 stars. ( )

Shange's poems are powerful stories that share the experiences of black women in America. They deal with love, heartbreak, growing up, death, friendship, and more. Her writing is beautiful and rhythmic, often mimicking the varied speech patterns of people from different areas of the U.S. She vividly captures the personality of each of the women represented in the Choreopoem, and shows how so many of the stories shared represent shared experiences. The reader walks away thinking about how maybe we are not all so different after all - that maybe women from all over share many of the same dilemmas, and we should learn to be kinder to ourselves and each other.
