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.
