“Hurston’s writing is beguiling. And Court’s production, full of whimsy, knowing winks and all the ruefulness of life, matches it note for bluesy note.”  —Sun-Times

4 Stars -Time Out Chicago

The verdant, joyful language of Zora Neale Hurston (Their Eyes Were Watching God) is animated through the music of the blues (performed by legendary jazz guitarist Kelvyn Bell) in these three tales of love, revenge, and redemption. Adapted by George C. Wolfe (The Colored Museum) and featuring musical narration composed by blues artist Chic Street Man, Spunk breathes new life into these remarkable stories by one of the greatest writers of the Harlem Renaissance.
