The Bitter Game - La Jolla Playhouse
Revelle Basketball Court
- The Bitter Game blends verse, prose and 'shit-talkin,' into a stirring commentary that begs the question, what does it mean to survive while Black in America? This solo work, ripe with pain, poetry and laughter, examines the relationship between a young man and his mother as each struggles to protect one another from that which seems inevitable. The Bitter Game explores the subtle and often unrecognized effects of racism, the question of police agency, and the value of Black lives in this country.
