      A Doll's House
    • Tuesday, January 16, 2018
    • A Doll's House by Henrik Ibsen, in a version by Simon Stephens. Production Co-Conceived by Jorge Cousineau and Terrence J. Nolen. Directed by Terrence J. Nolen. January 11-February 25, 2018. Approximate Runtime: 2 hours and 35 minutes including 1 intermission. Note: In this production, cigar smoke will be used for less than 30 seconds. Nora and Torvald are living their dream life with the brightest of futures. And then a long-buried secret rises to the surface, and Nora must choose between outward perfection and inner truth. Still shockingly relevant, this revolutionary classic will be brought to life in the intimacy of the Arcadia Stage.
      Bluest Eye
    • Thursday, March 1, 2018
    • Adapted by Lydia R. Diamond and directed by Raelle Myrick-Hodges. March 1 - April 1, 2018 on the F. Otto Haas Stage. Pecola Breedlove, a young black girl growing up in the 1940's, wants nothing more than to be loved. Confronting turmoil at home, she prays for Shirley Temple's blue eyes, believing their beauty is the only thing standing between her and the happiness of the white girls at school. This powerful adaptation explores the destructive power of racism and the strength of a community attempting to embrace an era of change.
