"Upstream Theater’s splendid Bitter Fruit becomes almost too moving at times. It’s great theatre." 

– Bob Wilcox, HEC

María doesn’t understand why her mother hired this new maid. She’s convinced the woman’s spying on behalf of the workers in their factory. But there’s something about her even more unsettling… Tensions smolder as a web of secrets, deceptions, and denials begins to unravel in this taut drama by Argentine playwright Héctor Levy-Daniel, where even love may be sacrificed on the altar of class.
