Toni Morrison’s The Bluest Eye

Adapted by Lydia R. Diamond
Directed by Raelle Myrick-Hodges

On the F. Otto Haas Stage
MARCH 1 – APRIL 1, 2018


Pecola Breedlove, a young black girl growing up in the 1940's, wants nothing more than to be loved. Confronting turmoil at home, she prays for Shirley Temple’s blue eyes, believing their beauty is the only thing standing between her and the happiness of the white girls at school. This powerful adaptation explores the destructive power of racism and the strength of a community attempting to embrace an era of change.

Honorary Producers:  Jeanne B. Fisher and Hether Smith


Opening Night Sponsor: Harmelin Media
