The Bear by Raymond Briggs

From the book by Raymond Briggs
Adapted by Pins and Needles

Ever wondered what it would be like to sit on a polar bear's lap? Or ride on its back? Have you ever tried to give a polar bear a bath, or clear up its poo?

One night when she's fast asleep, Tilly is visited by an enormous bear. It has a big black tongue and a yawn as big as your head. But Tilly's not scared.
 
The story of a little girl who befriends a mischievous polar bear, this playful, funny and heart-warming tale is one of imagination and growing up.
 
The Bear follows Pins and Needles’ hugely successful adaptation of Raymond Briggs’ Father Christmas.
 
Featuring inventive design, original music, and magical puppetry.


“A fine example of how, with imagination and flair, you can create excellent theatre from a very simple narrative.” The Stage on Father Christmas
 
“Magnificent” Observer on Father Christmas
