Toni Morrison's The Bluest Eye at The Guild Sanctuary

Join us for a communal story-telling experience with stage director Awoye Timpo, and explore the theatrical adaptation of The Bluest Eye.

The Guild Sanctuary has partnered with The Huntington for a unique communal story-telling experience. Acclaimed stage director Awoye Timpo invites guests to explore the topics of racism, Black beauty, and internalized oppression through the lens of Toni Morrison's (author of Beloved, and recipient of the Nobel & Pulitzer prize in Literature) groundbreaking novel, and Lydia Diamond's (Stick Fly, Smart People ) theatrical adaptation of The Bluest Eye.

Guests will be seated in a circle surrounding the director, and the experience will create a space for provocation, remembrance and healing. In Awoye’s words, “Coming together in a circle to tell a story is essential to our humanity. That’s what we’re inviting the community into with The Bluest Eye."
