With its five acts structured as the four quarters and overtime of a basketball game, The Bitter Game tells the story of Jamel Smith, who witnesses a neighborhood act of violence as a child and later must learn to navigate his interactions with police. Based on the playwright-actor Keith A. Wallace’s youth in Philadelphia, this multi-character performance brilliantly explores the experience of being Black in America. Warning: contains strong language.

This promenade theater peice will be taking place outdoors throughout The Wallis campus.

“High-impact ... a sharp reminder of the persuasive powers of live theater.” – The New York Times
