The Bear (Chekhov) in premiere at Spoffin Festival!
Updated: Oct 18, 2018
Chekhov’s story invites us into the world of a widow Popova (Jessica Zeylmaker), whose grief for her dead husband keeps her entombed in her own house. Her servant Loeka (Brian Verhagen)begs her to rejoin the world of the living, but the mourning widow hasn’t the will. A dashing man Smirnov ( Martijn van der Veen) raps on the door. It seems the widow’s deceased husband borrowed a tidy sum from this gentleman and he is now desperate to have the loan repaid. The widow has neither the cash nor the inclination. A war of wills ensues as Chekhov massages their battle into a comedic frenzy. Maybe, just maybe, while living amongst the debris of profound loss, might a second chance at love come knocking combatively at the door?
