Ballot Eats the Bullet: U Matter on Stage at Hyde Park Theatre

Thu February 22 @ 8:00 pm | 10:00 pm

$20 – $50

ZM3LiveProductions, in celebration of Black Herstory, is proud to present the original theatrical work Ballot Eats the Bullet: U Matter, at HPT Thursday through Saturday, February 22 – March 9.

Last year, HPT co-produced ZM3Live’s critically acclaimed Chronicles of an Indigenous offspring. That show was nominated for five B. Iden Payne Awards and made the Austin Chronicle’s “Top 10 Memorable Moments in Austin Theater of 2023.”

Like ChroniclesBallot Eats the Bullet: U Matter, was also written and directed by Austin Arts Hall of Fame artist Zell Miller, III, this time with writing contributions from award-winning author and playwright Anne Wynter. It features Chelsea Manasseri, Jennine “Doc” Krueger, and Amara Johnson, as well as introducing Amaiya Byrd.

The play is dedicated to the most silenced voice in American history: the black woman. This engaging choreopoem fuses jazz aesthetic movement, elegant melodic voices in four-part harmonies, truth-laced spoken word, and beautifully crafted vignettes that engage all five senses and paint a portrait of what it means to be a black woman in America. The piece openly confronts topics such as identity, politics, healthcare, relationships, love, and police brutality, all told through a lens of tough love with a side of humor.

Tickets are available online.
