The Pasadena Playhouse Presents
the One Pearl and a Sphinx Production of
Letters From Zora: In Her Own Words
Inspired by the works of
Zora Neale Hurston
Starring Vanessa Bell Calloway
Written by Gabrielle Denise Pina
Directed by Anita Dashiell-Sparks
Original Music by Ron McCurdy
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.
“Letters From Zora is an authentic multi-sensory experience of an extraordinary woman who defied the social conventions of the day and lived a life of her own creation,” stated playwright Gabrielle Pina. “The artistic fusion of music, history, and literary prose illuminates the resilience of the human spirit as well as Ms. Hurston’s philosophy of life and literature in her own words.”
