From the first day that Sp**k, a charismatic, guitar-playing wanderer, sets foot in his new home, his bravado and musical talents make him the talk of this rural Florida town.
Sp**k immediately catches the eye of the lovely, young, and married Evalina Bishop, and their love affair sets off a chain of extraordinary events that none of their gossip-loving neighbors will ever forget.
This play is based on Hurston’s short story Sp**k which was published by Opportunity Magazine in June 1925. Ten years later, Hurston wrote this theatrical adaptation, which was never published and was considered to be lost for many years until the text was located in 1997.
Note: This is not the 1989 George C. Wolfe play of the same name, based on three Hurston stories.
Playwright Zora Neale Hurston
Director Lili-Anne Brown
