This passionate and powerful literary powerhouse written by Ntozake Shange has excited and inspired audiences all over the world. These words uniquely and distinctly exemplify what it means to be of color and female in the 21st century. The play consists of women who come together to share their stories of their past, stories of their pleasure and stories of their pain. The words ring like lyrics of a song that speak passion, heartache, desire, rage and love. You don't want to miss OXCA's (Open Xpression thru Community Arts) production of this riveting masterpiece.
