Aurora Theater Company will present an audio adaptation of Toni Morrison’s THE BLUEST EYE, adapted by Lydia R. Diamond, directed by Dawn Monique Williams.
Pecola Breedlove is obsessed with Shirley Temple and the desire to have blue eyes. Claudia, another young girl and one of Pecola’s only friends, guides us through this hauntingly lyrical memory game. Diamond skillfully translates the emotional depths of black girlhood, the toxic effects of racism and the heartbreak of shame in Morrison’s work on stage.
Morrison puts THE BLUEST EYE in her hometown of Lorain, Ohio, and centers on three young black girls – Claudia, Pecola and Frieda – to understand love, sisterhood, abuse and hate.
