Bitter Wheat is a plays written by Pulitzer Prize winner David Mamet who will also be directing it. This play is an inspiration from the recent controversy which involves the disgraced Hollywood Producer Harvey Weinstein against whom many women came forward alleging him of sexual misconduct.This also gave rise to the #MeToo movement in the USA, and spread to some extent to other countries. John Malkovich Stars In BITTER WHEAT A Weinstein Inspired Play
Hollywood is a hell hole.
Everything in Hollywood is for sale except the awards, which are for rent.
BITTER WHEAT is a play about a depraved Hollywood mogul. It rips the pashmina off the suppurating wound which is show business, and leaves us better human beings, and fitter to once more confront the horror of life.
John Malkovich plays the role of Barney Fein, who is a bloated monster – a studio head, who like his predecessor, the minotaur, devours the young he has lured into his cave. His fall from power to shame is a mythic journey which has been compared to The Odyssey by people who claim to have read that book.
The play will run with a limited season from 7th July to 14th September. Book your tickets now.+
