(BPRW) Thandie Newton Powerfully Performs For Colored Girls Who Have Considered Suicide/When the Rainbow is Enuf

Groundbreaking Work of Literature Now a New Audiobook

(BLACK PR WIRE) What: presents the Obie Award-winning for colored girls who have considered suicide/when the rainbow is enuf, new in audio. Soon to be a star-studded movie, this mesmerizingly original story is performed by one of the film’s stars, acclaimed actress Thandie Newton. Playwright, poet, and novelist Ntozake Shange (Some Sing, Some Cry) chronicles the interconnected lives of a group of women, exploring shatteringly difficult issues, and evoking the indomitable power of enduring hope and joy. The New York Times called the book, “rich with the author’s special voice: by turns bitter, funny, ironic, and savage; fiercely honest and personal.” Thandie Newton, from the movies Crash, The Pursuit of Happyness, and W., captures the author’s uniquely vivid and lyrical voice, as well as each emotion, with heartbreaking clarity in a fearless, passionate, and inspiring performance.
