This Bitter Earth

Anacostia Playhouse
2020 Shannon Place SE Washington

Written by Harrison David Rivers. Directed by Otis Ramsey-Zoe, Jesse (Helen Hayes Award Winner Justin Weaks), an introspective black playwright, finds his lack of activism questioned by his white boyfriend, Neil (Noaf Schaefer), an impassioned member of the Black Lives Matter Movement. Tensions between them continue to grow with each headline announcing another extrajudicial killing. But the human heart can hold complex and often contradictory things, and the two men find themselves at a crossroads. This Bitter Earth explores the quiet revolutions of normalcy, reminding us of the intractable bind between the personal and political and the strength of love in today's turbulent world.
