Why See ?

The Pulitzer-winning story comes to life

The Color Purple has been performed at theaters around the country, and now you can enjoy this stirring story at this production in your town. Alice Walker's diverse and unforgettable characters come vividly to life on stage, blending dance with blues, gospel, jazz, swing, rural roots and African music. The Color Purple is a saga of hope, inspiration, and triumph, and is based on the Pulitzer-Prize winning novel by Alice Walker.

What is The Colour Purple About?

Life in the 1930s American South is hard, especially for Celie - a young African-American girl from a poor background. She lives with her abusive father until, at the tender age of just fourteen, she is married off to a man to be his wife, servant and tend to any needs he might have. The Colour Purple is a tender coming-of-age story that follows Celie as she discovers the power or love and of her own strength through friendships forged with several remarkable women.
