Mule Bone-A comedy of Negro Life

Penumbra Theatre
270 N. Kent Street
St. Paul, MN 55102

Recommended for ages 13 and up

By Zora Neal Hurston and Langston Hughes. The only collaboration between Zora Neale Hurston and Langston Hughes, two stars of the Harlem Renaissance, Mule Bone holds an unparalleled place in African-American theatre. Set in Eatonville, Florida--Hurston's hometown and the inspiration for much of her fiction--this energetic and farcical play centers on Jim and Dave, a two-man song-and-dance team, and Daisy, the woman who comes between them. Overcome by jealousy, Jim hits Dave with a mule bone and hilarity and chaos ensue as the town splits into two factions: Team Jim and Team Dave.
