Gbagyichild Entertainment, producers of Taruwa Arts and Culture Festival, brings to the theatre “Colour Me Man” – an exploration of some of the less frequently discussed things that “colour” men experience and eventually shapes them.
The play is loosely inspired by “For Coloured Girls Who Have Considered Suicide When the Rainbow Is Enuf” by Ntozake Shange and it is based on a series of monologues written by young Nigerian male bloggers who take on colors that represent different traits that may cause a man to be ‘colored’ a particular way by society.
Colour Me Man, which was adapted for stage by award-winning writers, Abiodun Kassim, Ikenna Jude Okpala, Oluwole Talabi and Pemi Agude, stars Deyemi Okanlawon, Timi Charles-Fadipe, Toju Ejoh, Seun Kentebe, Ola-Rotimi Fakunle and Simi Hassan.
It is directed by Najite Dede and produced by Lydia Idakula Sobogun.
