The Bitter Game
Wednesday, September 27th, 2017 and Thursday, September 28th, 2017 at 8:00PM
When Jamel’s mother discovers her young son playing with a toy gun, she knows it’s time to explain the rules of the game to him – the rules of surviving as a Black man in America. In this explosive solo performance combining verse, prose and "sh**-talkin’,” Keith A. 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.
Student tickets are $10.
