This Bitter Earth

A deep love is challenged by divisive political realities. Jesse, an introspective black playwright, finds his choices called into question when his boyfriend, Neil, a white Black Lives Matter activist, calls him out for his political apathy. As passions and priorities collide, this couple is forced to reckon with issues of race, class and the bravery it takes to love out loud. Tickets: $15-38 | Purchase here. To secure membership for the entire season, click here! Read more about the event on Facebook! Active military, veterans, and their families may qualify for our Blue Star Theatre discount!
