The Bluest Eye

Performance Dates
Opening Performance

Eleven-year-old Pecola Breedlove, a Black girl in 1940s Ohio, wants nothing more than to be loved by her family and schoolmates. Blaming her dark skin for the ridicule she endures, she prays for blue eyes, sure that love will follow.

The stage adaptation of Morrison’s acclaimed novel invites audiences to consider how they have internalized beauty standards, whiteness, and other societal constructs that keep us lonely and isolated from one another.
