Description

The Cal Shakes 2012 season continues with a wild, bluesy wail—three stories by the great Harlem Renaissance writer Zora Neale Hurston, adapted into a staggeringly theatrical play by George C. Wolfe, who won an Obie for its 1989 off-Broadway premiere production. A trio of vignettes of African-American life in the first half of the 20th century, Spunk is a raucous, charming, blues-infused look at love, revenge, jealousy, and the fine art of the hustle.

AGE RECOMMENDATION: _Spunk contains mature subject matter and is best enjoyed by ages 13+. See the “Age Recomendation” information for more detailsSpunk.html?tab=6&panel=1#TabbedPanels2.

Running time: 90 minutes, no intermission
