Film and TV star Vanessa Bell Calloway returns to Karamu in this spirited two-act play featuring authentic personal letters from Zora Neale Hurston to close friends such as Langston Hughes and Countee Cullen.

Performances of this spicy new play, written by Gabrielle Denise Pena and directed by Anita Dashiell-Sparks, will be held in the newly renovated, Jelliffe Theatre. Calloway stars as Zora in a “spellbounding and magnetic” performance as the Harlem Renaissance poet and author. The performance is 90 minutes with no intermission. $25 - $50

Bent

Fridays-Sundays, 8-10 p.m. Continues through July 1

rtisdale@beckcenter.org

The influential play Bent follows a group of gay men finding ways to survive persecution before and after the Night of the Long Knives. Within the confines of a concentration camp a secret love affair illustrates how the selfless love of one person for another can overcome oppression, even under the most extreme circumstances. When Bent was written, there was little awareness about the persecution of homosexuals by the Nazis. The original production starred Ian McKellen, and the play has gone on to increase education and historical research. Nominated for a 1979 Tony Award for Best Play. Adult Content $15-$33
