Keeping with Theatre Conspiracy's latest initiative to produce work that is geared towards minority artists, Theatre Conspiracy will open THE BLUEST EYES by Lydia Diamond based on the Pulitzer Prize winning book by Toni Morrison. This show will open February 5.
This critically-acclaimed adaptation follows three girls in post-depression Ohio. Eleven year-old Pecola Breedlove despises her dark skin and prays for blue eyes, sure that love will follow. Claudia and Frieda McTeer are sisters who try to care for Pecola when the rest of the community fails to do so. With rich language and bold vision, this story examines standards of beauty, a young girl’s coming of age and the devastating events she endures.
