Sweat & Spunk
A theatrical adaptation of two phenomenal short-stories written by Zora Neale Hurston; in celebration of the 54th BRG Mainstage Season.


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.
