CHOIR BOY
by Tarell Alvin McCraney

THIS AWARD-WINNING PRODUCTION IS AN OFFICIAL PRODUCTION OF THE
INAUGURAL NORFOLK THEATRE FESTIVAL


NSU Theatre Company's critically acclaimed 2017 National Black Theatre Festival production of Choir Boy will be presented at the inaugural Norfolk Theatre Festival. Choir Boy is infused with the spirit and music of glorious gospel spirituals. It tells the story of Pharus, who wants to lead his school’s legendary choir—but quickly learns that the “key” he sings in, is not in tune with the men of Drew Prep.

Choir Boy contains adult language and situations.

Attucks Theatre

THE BLUEST EYE
by Lydia R. Diamond

THIS SEASON'S VIRGINIA STAGE COMPANY COLLABORATION


Adapted from Nobel Prize and Pulitzer Prize-winning author Toni Morrison’s first novel, this play explores race and class during the post-Great Depression era. Young Pecola Breedlove prays for Shirley Temples’ blue eyes, sure that love and acceptance will follow; but for a young black girl in Ohio in the 1940’s, fitting in is easier wished for than done. This poetic narrative illuminates the destructive powers of racism, colorism, and how the dynamics of family and community can lift us up or tear us down.

The Bluest Eye contains strong adult language and situations.

VENUE:
Virginia Stage Company at the Wells Theatre
108 E. Tazewell Street, Norfolk, Virginia
