Known play Learn more about this play
Anton Chekhov's play The Bear is typically relegated to that subgenre of comedy known as the farce. What separates a farce from the more pedestrian and commonplace "comedy" is that it is infused with a sense of whimsy as well as a detachment from reality that, paradoxically, should serve to make it all the more realistic. In the case of The Bear the farcical elements are utilized to heighten the emotional intensity that is under normal circumstances subject to far too much control and restraint to allow it freedom in a work of drama as short as this play. Alexander J C Forni directs the production and underlines darker sides of the piece with a twist.

The piece serves as a prologue to Charm Offensive's 5 star production of "The Seagull".
