Live Rich, Die Poor - A One Woman Show
Time & Location
About The Event
Based on the life of Zora Neale Hurston, the brilliant writer from the Harlem Renaissance who wrote There Eyes Were Watching God comes an unapologetic look at her colorful life. Using poetry, music and humor, this show takes a look at her life and imagines what her philosophy of life was. What kind of mood and attitude did she have as she traversed this earth. Actress and writer Ann Perry Wallace re-imagines scenes from Hurston’s life; from her happy days in Eatonville, the devastating loss of her mother, the lost years of wandering that she never spoke of, to arriving in New York and becoming a fixture within the writing world of the Harlem Renaissance and even her falling out with Langston Hughes. This is a study of a woman who fought to live life on her own terms.
