Toni Morrison's Fable of Race, Beauty & Youth
With rich language and bold vision, Lydia Diamond's (Stick Fly) theatrical adaptation of Beloved author Toni Morrison's classic and controversial novel explores the crippling toll that centuries of racism and false standards of beauty have taken on a small Ohio community. Written like a children's fable for adults, this story spends a year in the life of an 11-year-old girl named Pecola, who curses her dark skin and prays for blue eyes -- believing that they alone will make her beautiful, with true love sure to follow. Directed by Raelle Myrick-Hodges, this play brings issues of race, representation and feminism to the stage at the F. Otto Haas Theatre in Philadelphia.
