About this show

Through the dramatization of personal letters, Letters From Zora explores Hurston's controversial views on integration, segregation and social justice showcasing a life that was filled with artistic triumphs as well as abject poverty and self-doubt. Veteran actress Vanessa Bell Calloway plays the role of Zora in this provocative multimedia production directed by Anita Dashiell-Sparks and written by novelist Gabrielle Pina. With original music composed by Ron McCurdy and archival images collected by Margie Labadie, Letters From Zora will illuminate Hurston's prose, her life, her distinctive array of friends and foes and her unique view of a jazz-age world.
