Comic Masterpiece Heading to The Cut

Suffolk-based Open Space Theatre Company is going ahead with a November tour of Anton Chekhov’s comic masterpiece, The Bear, and visits The Cut on Friday, November 13 and Saturday, November 14 at 7.30pm.

The Cut has been successfully running cinema events on Wednesday evenings and the building and staff are used to socially distanced audiences. This will be the first theatre performance since lockdown and they’re looking forward to seeing the building used for live events.

David Green, Open Space Artistic Director, explains, ‘We’re keen to demonstrate that live theatre is possible, and can be acceptably safe. We hope audiences will feel comfortable and safe in coming back to the theatre and we wanted to support venues. A night of comedy may be more needed now than it has ever been!’

The Bear is a one act comedy, and Open Space are also performing The Proposal and The Evils of Tobacco. A landowner calls on a young widow to request payment for a debt incurred by her late husband. When the money is not handed over, tempers fray with hilarious consequences. This fast-paced drama is a comic masterpiece.

The show will last an hour with no interval.
Tickets cost £12/£9.50. Booking essential at www.newcut.org/events.
