What if the only apparent survivors of the apocalypse were three bears? Two grizzlies in captivity, Growl Bear and Timmy Bear, find themselves stuck in a suddenly deserted zoo. Enter Susie, a new wild bear, who convinces them to leave the safety of their cave and venture into the wilderness where they must learn who they are and how to survive.
Wrapped in ursine-lore and story-telling as old as the stars themselves, Sans A's latest production asks: what does it truly mean to be a Bear?
The running time of Bears is 2 hours including an intermission.
Please note: due to adult themes and situations, this play is not suitable for anyone under the age of 14.
