About From Okra to Greens

From Okra to Greens

By Ntozake Shange

Directed by Ontaria Kim Wilson

Feb. 1st-3rd.

Stage Manager: Scarlet Garcia

Like Ntozake Shange’s world renowned choreopoem For Colored Girls…., From Okra To Greens serves a melodious bowl of soulfully cooked poetry, music, and dance blending in both choreopoem and musical theatre seasoning. It is a reminder of the importance of teaching the history of a people; honoring the indigenous people of the lands in which we plant our feet; and allowing love, in its purest form, to flourish. This is a different type of love story.

This production contains explicit language, referenced moments of the Pan African lived experience throughout the world, and a reference to sexual abuse.
