Celebrate the legacy of Pulitzer and Nobel Prize winning author Toni Morrison’s acclaimed debut novel The Bluest Eye

Brought to life as a tremendously moving theatrical event by Boston favorite Lydia R. Diamond (Stick Fly, Smart People) and acclaimed director Awoye Timpo, The Bluest Eye tells the story of Pecola, a young Black girl who believes everything in her world would be made wonderful if only she had blue eyes. 

Enthralling, gorgeously written, and incredibly emotional, The Bluest Eye asks powerful questions concerning racism, beauty, and identity with stunning grace and subtlety.
