The Color PurpleThe Menier Chocolate Factory's reputation for staging excellent musical dramas continues with the European premiere of The Color Purple which opens at the Southwark venue on Friday 5th July 2013. John Doyle, who previously worked with the venue on the Stephen Sondheim musical Road Show, directs this musical drama of Alice Walker's Pulitzer Prize winning novel. The drama tells the story of a young girl Celie and her journey from childhood, despair and horror to find enduring love. With music and lyrics by Grammy award winners Brenda Russell, Allee Willis and Stephen Bray, this adaption by Pulitzer Prize and Tony award winner Marsha Norman has all the right ingredients to give the Menier another hit.

About Menier Chocolate Factory

Housed in a former chocolate factory, this innovative theatre has rapidly established itself as one of London's best. Since opening in 2004, it has had half-a-dozen West End transfers, most of them slick revivals of recent plays and musicals, including Merrily We Roll Along, A Little Night Music, Sunday in the Park With George, Dealer's Choice, and Little Shop of Horrors.
