Open Call Theater Auditions - November 2017

"Sweat & Spunk". Two phenomenal short-stories written by Zora Neale Hurston.
BERKELEY, Calif. - Nov. 5, 2017 - PRLog -- Two classic narratives about  revenge and redemption. Zora Neale Hurston captures the brave and daring spirit of a 1920s all Black town in the South.

"Sweat" is a story of liberation that follows Delia and Sykes Jones along a psychologically pressured journey of extreme love versus extreme hate.  The terror of the tale unfolds as Delia has to cope with her increasingly intimidating, violent adulterating husband.

"Spunk" is about a time when gossip and story-telling are a valued source of entertainment.  News travels fast, after a trusted local source reports an eyewitness account of Spunk Banks in the bushes, with a married woman. The family dramas quickly escalate as the quiet town gets rocked with fear.
