BERKELEY, Calif. - Nov. 16, 2017 - PRLog -- Black Repertory Group Mainstage Productions presents "Sweat & Spunk". 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. Family dramas quickly escalate as the quiet town gets rocked with fear.

"Sweat & Spunk" runs January 12 – 28, 2018 at the Black Repertory Group Theater. Located at 3201 Adeline Street in Berkeley, CA 94703. One block south of the Ashby BART Station.

Ticket Prices range from $12.50 to $50. VIP Admission includes priority seating and one complementary beverage. Youth, Senior, Military/Veteran and Student discounts are available. Private parties are welcome with special rates for groups of 10 or more.

VIP Finale Gala on Saturday, January 27, 2018 at 8:00 PM; features a Pre-Show Reception and the delectable "From Sea To Soul Food Buffet" presented by Family Pot.

Tickets are available online at http://www.blackrepertorygroup.com/sweat---spunk.html
