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.
