Nobel Prize-winning author Toni Morrison's The Bluest Eye is a story about the tragic life of a young black girl in 1940s Ohio

Eleven-year-old Pecola Breedlove wants nothing more than to be loved by her family and schoolmates

Instead, she faces constant ridicule and abuse

She blames her dark skin and prays for blue eyes, sure that love will follow

With rich language and bold vision, this powerful adaptation of an American classic explores the crippling toll that a legacy of racism has taken on a community, a family, and an innocent girl

Flexible staging - runs about 90 minutes

"This is bittersweet, moving drama that preserves the vigor and the disquiet of Ms. Morrison's novel ... for theatergoers of any age, it is not to be missed" ~ The New York Sun
