Edinburgh...Post Show Discussion with Thom Dibdin

This week The Bear will be heading up to the Traverse Theatre in Edinburgh.

On 17 May there will be a post show discussion with co-creator of The Bear Angela Clerkin, in conversation with The Stage's Scottish correspondent and theatre critic Thom Dibdin. 
In conversation with the Traverse, Thom says 

He went on to say "The company have real form, too. And of course composer on the project is Nick Powell who was a co-founder on the fantastic Suspect Culture.

So I'm just looking forward to finding out from Angela about the making of this strange, intriguing project - and from the audience whether they think it has worked - or not."

Please see the Traverse Website for more details. 

The Bear is playing 16 - 18 May, with Angela and Thom's after show discussion on the 17. Entry to after show discussion is included in the ticket price - all welcome. 

The Bear on Tour

Below are a few regional press quotes that have come out on tour so far...

"a wonderful, interesting & powerful story told in a unique way" ★★★★ (The Good Review)
"For all its rich themes, some of them intensely dark, there's a deliberate, quaint charm about The Bear that keeps you warmly engaged." (Daily Info)

"Beautifully scripted and directed, the play moves seamlessly between the comic and the sinister, juxtaposing the disturbing with the ridiculous" (Oxford Theatre Review)
