The Dream Lives On Through Art Forms & Theatre Concepts, Inc.

Art Forms & Theatre Concepts, Inc. is excited for its 2019 PICCOLO SPOLETO Arts Festival Production!

“The Bluest Eye”  Written by Toni Morrison  Adapted by Lydia R. Diamond

The Bluest Eye is a story about the tragic life of a young black girl in 1940s Ohio who wants nothing more than to be loved by her family and schoolmates. Instead, she faces constant ridicule and abuse which she blames on her dark skin and prays for blue eyes. This powerful adaptation explores the crippling toll that a legacy of racism has taken on a community and an innocent girl.
