The Color Purple is a musical theatre adaptation of Alice Walker's best-selling novel. I saw the movie a couple of years ago and it left somewhat of an impression. Loving the previous productions I saw at the Menier Chocolate Factory I wanted to see their latest production as well. 

The Color Purple takes place between 1914 and 1945 in the southern states of the United States. It tells the story of Celie (Cynthia Erivo). After giving birth to two children fathered by her step-father she is married off to Mister (Christopher Colquhoun). Mister originally wanted to marry Celie's beautiful sister, Nettie (Abiona Omonua). But her father wants her to become a teacher. Celie wants to protect her little sister and so she obediently marries Mister. Mister is in love with jazz-singer Shug Avery (Nicola Hughes) and he beats up Celie for the sheer fact of her not being like Shug. Shug tours the country with her singing act and is known for her flings and several illegitimate children. Celie and Shug fall in love but soon Shug leaves again to sing. But before she leaves she finds the many letters that Nettie send to Celie, and Mister had hidden from her.

Some time ago I bought this vintage Holiday photo album on my favorite Dutch secondhand website. The album contains photo's from 1911 to 1934 and has lots of family photo's and little remarks scribbled on the pages.


Nederlands: Een tijdje geleden kocht ik op marktplaats een oud fotoalbum met vakantie foto's. Het album bevat foto's die werden gemaakt tussen 1911 en 1934 en staat bol van de familiekiekjes en kleine aantekeningetjes.
