After all the chatter, we get to watch the play!
The Nigerian stage play adaptation of “For Coloured Girls” will be opening today, 29th December 2011. We are so excited about this and you should definitely see this play.

For Coloured Girls: The Nigerian Adaptation is directed by Wole Oguntokun and will premiere at the Shell Hall, Muson Centre on December 29th 2011, with two encore performances on December 30th.

For Coloured Girls brings some of Nigeria’s hottest and most prolific actresses together in what promises to be an emotionally powerful and thought provoking play. Joke Silva brings years of theatre experience to the award winning play and will take the role of the Lady in Red. Tinsel favourites Iretiola Doyle and Matilda Obaseki will play the Lady in Brown and the Lady in Green. Studio 53 Extra anchor Marcy Dolapo Oni is the Lady in Blue, while Reanne Weruche Opia plays the Lady in Purple. Olajumoke Ladi Bello plays the vivacious Lady in Orange.

For Coloured Girls Who Have Considered Suicide/When the Rainbow is Enuf was written by Ntozake Shange and recently adapted into a major motion film production by award winning producer/director Tyler Perry.
