Celebrate the legacy of Pulitzer and Nobel Prize winning author Toni Morrison and see her classic debut novel come to life. Boston favorite Lydia Diamond (Stick Fly, Smart People at The Huntington) adapts the book with grace and subtlety. The Bluest Eye tells the story of Pecola, a young Black girl who believes the world would be wonderful if she could have blue eyes. Enthralling, gorgeously written, and incredibly emotional, The Bluest Eye is an American touchstone.


Director Awoye Timpo is inspired by the storytelling traditions of Black rituals. Audiences will be seated in a circle surrounding the actors, and the experience will create a space for provocation, remembrance and healing. In Awoye’s words, “Coming together in a circle to tell a story is essential to our humanity. That’s what we’re inviting the community into with The Bluest Eye."
