    This summer THE COLOR PURPLE receives its European premiere at the Menier Chocolate Factory!

    Based on Alice Walker's 1982 Pulitzer Prize-winning novel, THE COLOR PURPLE follows Celie and her trials, tribulations and triumphs as a young African American woman in 1930s Georgia. A tale of stirring family drama and personal empowerment, Celie journeys from childhood through joy, despair, hope and anguish, to discover the power of love and life.

    With a fresh, uplifting score of jazz, ragtime, gospel and blues, the production runs from 5 July unil 14 September, with press night at the Southwark venue on 15 July.  

    Tony Award winner John Doyle (Stephen Sondheim's Road Show at the Menier Chocolate Factory, and Mack and Mabel) will direct.

    THE COLOR PURPLE has been adapted for the stage by the Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award-winning Marsha Norman, with music and lyrics by Grammy winners Brenda Russell, Allee Willis and Stephen Bray. THE COLOR PURPLE is being produced at the Menier Chocolate Factory by special arrangement with Scott Sanders and Roy Furman.
