Opened 28 Jan 2014
WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
"Something is growing inside you. You will be a mother. A mother to the thing that is growing inside you.". Two parents did not seek, nor did they expect a baby grizzly bear, but he's coming. He's coming with hair, claws and teeth. Their families are afraid and the medical community is up in arms. The Press smell blood in the water. How do you respond to suddenly being just one in a million, or a billion? Bear is a three hander; two actors and an audience. Uniquely, our audiences are invited to judge, react and perhaps even play a central part of this moving story about love, shame, forgiveness, guilt, pride and parenthood.
