Based upon Alice Walker’s acclaimed novel of the same name, THE COLOR PURPLE is the epic tale of 40-years in the life of a family in rural Georgia. At its center is fourteen-year-old Celie. When Celie is forced by her abusive father to marry a cruel farmer, called “Mister,” she is separated from all that she loves. Ultimately, Celie conquers the odds to find her voice and her strength, coming into her own. THE COLOR PURPLE celebrates the healing power of love and the importance of a zest for life.
