THE BLUE LADY is a revisionist story about a family’s history since slavery from a female point of view. This monologue is by the daughter in law of the 7th great-grandmother. She has just been beaten for the first time by her new husband, a mulatto teenager who is the Master's son and his favorite. The boy has inherited his father's sociopathic personality.
In this monologue, Blue is denied help from the plantation owner's housekeeper. Blue is the incomplete soul, The Blue Lady, a “ghost” who is the protagonist of this story. Eventually, she dies after delivering twins and begins to haunt the family.
The Blue Lady is the story of a family who carries the “boogeyman” of their childhood around all their life. But it’s not a boogeyman – it’s the “Blue Lady,” a photophobic, ghostlike creature.
A ghost is not what it seems.
