The Bitter Game
Date: October 14, 2017 Time: 8:00 PM - 10:00 PM
Event Description “The show is a sharp reminder of the persuasive powers of live theatre.” — Ben Brantley, The New York Times Basketball, block parties, traffic stops — Keith A. Wallace takes us on a ride through North Philly on a night he won’t forget. A searing solo theater piece charged with pain, poetry, and laughter, The Bitter Game blends verse, prose and sh*t-talkin’ into a stirring commentary that begs the question: what does it mean to survive while Black in America? Wallace draws on his own youth in Philadelphia to examine the effects of racism, the question of excessive force used by police, and the value of Black lives in this country.
