Zora Neale Hurston’s long-forgotten script Polk County was discovered seven
years ago in the Library of Congress. Berkeley Repertory Theatre is now staging the
play’s west coast premiere. Two key players in the production are co-adapter Cathy
Madison and featured actor Kevin Jackson. Carla Kaplan collected and edited hundreds of Hurston’s letters; her book is Zora
Neale Hurston: A Life in Letters.
