All the Way West Productions, Inc. is thrilled to bring to the stage its Black History Month Production of The Bluest Eye, an adapted play by Lydia Diamond. This is a tribute and 50th Anniversary celebration of the publication of the work by Pulitzer and Noble Prize-winning author Toni Morrison.
The Bluest Eye is a haunting and tragic portrait of a black girl’s coming of age in the racially turbulent 1940s. 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.
