"Christa McAuliffe’s Eyes Were Blue" - Online


Feb 24, 2021 - Apr 4, 2021    Our Price: $10



Christa McAuliffe’s Eyes Were Blue – Online - Bernard and Steven Gentry are twins who have lived starkly different lives. The big reason? One is plagued by racism because of his dark skin while the other passes as white. Steven spent his childhood trying to fit in and is now a successful attorney. Bernard was a star student who dreamt of space, but his current prospects are about as dismal as the Challenger Space Shuttle that once inspired him. Spanning their 80s New York City childhood to a Minnesota courtroom in 2006, "Christa McAuliffe’s Eyes Were Blue" is a haunting meditation on race and privilege in America. Celebrate the unrivaled diversity and excellence of the playwrights who call Center Theatre Group and Los Angeles home at our third annual L.A. Writers’ Workshop Festival: New Plays Forged in L.A. We're proud to showcase bold and original new works by L.A. Writers’ Workshop participants that represent some of the freshest voices and impulses in the modern American theatre.
