Signature Theatre has announced the cast and creative team of Spunk, George C. Wolfe's adaptation of three Zora Neale Hurston short stories, directed by Timothy Douglas, running April 30-June 23 in Signature's ARK Theatre.

Iyona Blake, Drew Drake, Marty Lamar, Ines Nassara, Jonathan Mosley-Perry, and KenYatta Rogers will star in the production. The creative team will include Mark G. Meadows (musical direction), Dane Figueroa Edidi (choreography), Luciana Stecconi (scenic design), Sherrice Mojgani (lighting design), Kendra Rai (costume design), Ryan Hickey (sound design), and Cliff Williams III (fight choreography).

Spunk is described as follows: "An unearthly Guitar Man and Blues Speak Woman tantalizingly interweave three tales of the early 20th century African American experience, from the fierce determination of a resilient washerwoman, to the zoot suit struts of 1940s Harlem, to the bittersweet innocence of young married love."
