Staged Reading of The Bear Suit of Happiness
January 30, 2013, 7:30PM

Please join us for the second open staged reading of The Bear Suit of Happiness! See how the script has evolved through our collaborative process and your comments from the last reading and provide us with even more feedback as we gear up to performances in March. Complimentary beer will be served and the reading will last approximately 2 hours followed by a brief talkback.

More about the show:
In 1943, Woody, a young gay American, enlists in the army. After being shipped out to a remote Pacific Island, he is given an order: “Put up a show to entertain the men. Keep it simple. Needs music. And they like drag.”

Woody becomes a one-man war. He fights to write a show worthy of his fellows’ last laughs. Torn between fantasy and reality, his silly camp show grows to be a dream of an impossibly hospitable world. Theatre of war and theatre of the mind play out together on Woody’s little stage as he battles to build an identity and to be free.
