John McLinn Ross players to present For Colored Girls

" "The John McLinn Ross Players at the University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff will present For Colored Girls Who Have Considered Suicide When The Rainbow Is Enuf. The performance will run February 16-18 at 7:30pm nightly in the J.M. Ross theatre of the Hathaway-Howard Fine Arts building. The show is under the direction of Assistant Professor of Theatre, Brandon D. Smith.

The play chronicles seven women who take turns giving a voice to the women who have been silenced by the pains of the past, the fears of the current, and the uncertainty of the future. Whether a person is aware or not, there is a chance they know a woman who has struggled with domestic violence; a woman who was raped or sexually abused; a woman who feels that she is worth nothing more than what someone is willing to pay for her; or a woman who is fed up with her current situation, but doesn’t think she’s strong enough to get out.

The cost of admission is $5.00 for students with a valid ID and $7.00 for general public. February 16 is also student night; UAPB students are admitted free with valid university ID. Each performance has a talkback session after the show where the audience members can ask questions of the actors and crew about the production.
