"THE BEAR" and "AFTERPLAY" two plays after by Brian Friel directed by Rhett Bryson February 12-13 & 20 at 7:30pm February 14-15 & 21-22 at 8pm matinees February 16 & 23 at 3pm #FUBearPlay #Playhouse50 Distinguished Irish playwright Brian Friel is well-noted for his clever and thoughtful re-imagining of Anton Chekhov’s wonderful plays. In “The Bear,” Friel adapts Chekhov’s play of the same name with modern sensibilities. A boorish landowner visits with comic and unexpected results. “Friel’s ‘The Bear’ is superbly funny, vivid and keenly alert to Chekhov’s modern sensitivities to gender issues…" --The Daily Telegraph In "Afterplay," Friel revisits 2 characters from separate Chekhov plays (Uncle Vanya and Three Sisters). He has them meet in a run-down Moscow café and their lives become intertwined in a charming way. “Friel’s audacious Chekhovian epilogue is short, masterful and hilarious…prior knowledge of Chekhov is neither assumed nor required." --The Guardian Single tickets on sale online January 27.
