#MeToo. Hollywood gave yet another trend-worthy hashtag to the world in 2018, but it wasn’t about a movie! The grim reality of money, sex, and power controlling the show business, was revealed to the world when allegations of sexual abuse against Harvey Weinstein came flying fast. David Mamet wrote Bitter Wheat to expose the machinations of a depraved mind who wields too much power for his own good, just like the Minotaur from the Odyssey who lures young maidens to his cave. Bitter Wheat is a play that is equal parts chaotic, funny, contemplative, and momentous!

About the Show

Bitter Wheat is written and directed by David Mamet, a renowned stage creative and Pulitzer-winner who is known for his firebrand works. His works include Oleanna, Glengarry Glen Ross, Speed-the-plow and Race. The play will have John Malkovich in the lead role; he is known for his roles in movies like Places in the Heart, In the Line of Fire, Warm Bodies, and Bird Box and even has two Academy-Award nominations. He is supported by a cast that includes Doon Mackichan and Ionna Kimbrook. Christopher Oram leads the play design with lighting by Neil Austin.

The Story

2018 was a game-changing year for women worldwide as it was the year the MeToo movement sparked, offering women a chance to speak out. The movement was fuelled by the actions of Harvey Weinstein who is a famous Hollywood producer. He faced several accusations of sexual harassment, and it exposed the dirty secrets of Hollywood and show business in general. Bitter Wheat is about this ugly side of the glitzy entertainment business.

John Malkovich plays Barney Fein in Bitter Wheat, a Hollywood Producer and a character based on Harvey Weinstein. His rise and fall have been compared to the Odyssey, and how money, sex, and power corrupted the best and creative minds. Watch the utter depravity and drive of the movie mogul to manipulate and twist everyone who comes in his way – starry-eyed actresses, award committees and creatives in Bitter Wheat.
