About this show

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 the police. Based on the playwright-actor Keith A. Wallace's youth in Philadelphia, this multicharacter performance brilliantly explores the experience of being black in America today.
