Set in America’s Deep South during the 1930s, The Col-or Purple is an inspiring family saga that tells the unforgettable story of a poor, pregnant 14-year-old woman who – through newfound sisterhood and love – finds the strength to triumph over abuse and victimization from her father and husband, and other sufferings in life, and discovers her unique voice in the world. Set to a joyous score featuring jazz, ragtime, gospel and blues, it’s a story of hope: a testament to the healing power of love and a celebration of life.
