Over a period of six hours Speak Bitterness shows a group of penitents whose enormous task it is to confess to everything. They are by turns cowed, breezy, anguished, reluctant, jovial, and—of course—determined. Occupying a brightly lit space, a group of performers behind a long table take turns competing to confess the most horrific, amusing, or convincing things—from crimes as serious as forgery, murder, or genocide to nasty little indiscretions, such as reading others’ diaries and not taking the dog out for a walk. The audience is free to arrive, leave, and return at any point.
