Eleven-year-old Pecola Breedlove wants nothing more than to be loved by her family and schoolmates. Instead, she faces constant ridicule and abuse. She blames her dark skin and prays for blue eyes, sure that love will follow. With rich language and bold vision, this beautiful theatrical adaptation of Nobel Prize-winner Toni Morrison’s classic American novel explores the crippling toll that a legacy of racism in one small Ohio town has taken on a community, a family, and an innocent girl. Mature content, not recommended for ages 13 and under.
