Note: The following text may contain spoilers

FOR COLORED GIRLS is a US drama based on a stage play, interweaving the lives of several very different female characters, based around monologues taken from a collection of 20 poems.

Language

There is occasional use of strong language ('f**k').

Violence

Scenes of domestic violence include implied violence towards a woman and a father threatening his two small children. In one scene a woman is raped, with the sequence focussing on the face of the victim rather than nudity or graphic detail. The work does not encourage or condone the actions of the attacker.

There are occasional moderate sex references, an undetailed scene set in a back-street abortionist's, and an attempted suicide.
