The Bluest Eye
Based on the controversial novel, the play was originally commissioned for stage by Steppenwolf Theatre Company. Banned in some areas of the country, this adaptation focuses on the perception of beauty, love and racism aspects of our culture. 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.
