As the twenties roared and the Harlem renaissance thrived, a young woman from rural Florida became the toast of literary New York. Jump at the Sun chronicles the passionate life of Zora Neale Hurston (author of Their Eyes Were Watching God) who went from spinning tales on the front porch of a country store to writing prizewinning stories, novels, and plays. Imbued with the rhymes and rhythms of the Jazz Age, Hurston’s story reveals a woman’s ferocious appetite for life, literature, and love.

An LA Theatre Works full-cast performance featuring David Downing, Cyndi James Gossett, Tommy Hicks, Lamakhosi Kunene, John LaFayette, Mark Christopher Lawrence, Loren Lester, Tina Lifford, Nan Martin, Marian Mercer, Felton Perry, and Esther Scott.
