Ever wondered what it would be like to sit on a polar bear’s lap, ride on its back or give it a bath? Looking after a bear is exhausting stuff as Tilly finds out when one night an enormous snowy white bear climbs into her bedroom. It has a big black tongue and a yawn as big as your head. But Tilly’s not scared.
With dazzling puppetry, delicious music, dreamy storytelling, and dozens of laughs, The Bear is an unforgettable experience for the whole family and a perfect introduction to theatre for little ones.
The Bear is a heart-warming and humorous wintry tale from the team that brought you the hugely successful Father Christmas. Pins and Needles are delighted to be bringing to life another of the much loved stories of Raymond Briggs, creator of The Snowman.
The Bear is published by Penguin Random House.
