Summary :

Mule Bone is the only collaboration between Zora Neale Hurston and Langston Hughes, two stars of the Harlem Reenaissance, and it holds an unparalleled place in the annals of African-American theater. Set in Eatonville, Florida—Hurston's hometown and the inspiration for much of her ficiton—this energetic and often farcical play centers on Jim and Dave, a two-man song-and-dance team, and Daisy, the woman who comes between them. Overcome by jealousy, Jim hits Dave with a mule bone and hilarity follows chaos as the town splits into two factions: the Methodists, who want to pardon Jim; and the Baptists, who wish to banish him for his crime.
