★★★★★ Gold Winner IBPA Benjamin Franklin Digital Gold Award ★★★★★
COLOURS is an absurd tragicomedy for six characters. The play engages the audience on a fool’s odyssey as he battles to make sense of a new world upon surviving an apocalyptic catastrophe, in search of a bathtub. A Peculiar Commentary on the Human Condition Facing the Perplexities of Modernity
Each page is designed as a work of art, carefully crafted through composition and typography to animate ideas on paper. "The book is entirely and intentionally composed of a mixture of real and imaginary words.” Its uniqueness lays in the intricate and surprising ploy of language: twisted, invented, pun intended. COLOURS bridges philosophy and absurdity in a judiciously dynamic way.

Beautiful illustrations, innovatory writing and an ingenious performance (audiobook). Natasha's prodigious creative talents all seem to merge in this work. In addition to being theatrical, whimsical, eccentric, original AND entertaining, it is an aesthetic and dramatic book. I LOVE the audio and the visual together. It's a worthy adventure.
