Intelligent, Indulgent, Clever

See it if you like a bit of history, decent character monologues, and meta-theaterical plays. Enjoy farce mixed with social commentary.

Don't see it if you want a very focused play, a completely consistent tone, mind a play that is a bit long and maybe has too many monologues. Read more

“ 'Ye Bear' is a fantasia on colonial themes — messy, overstated, indifferently competent. It is also tenacious and generous, with a sweet-tempered approach to its audience interactions."

" 'Ye Bear and Ye Cubb' tries to be both frivolous and serious...this show is more about the American theater and the power that theater can hold...I should be on your side but something about the self-reverential solemnity of their message did not convince me."
