Exit, Pursued by a Bear (2013)

Directed by Francesca Savige and George Banders

December 19, 2013 to December 21, 2013

"In the forest of Arden, a ragbag assembly of players gather to prepare a play for the Duke and Duchess' wedding night. They thought this simple woodshed would be a marvellous convenient place for their rehearsal. Little did they know that their amateur acting antics would be consistently interrupted by the dramatics of some of Shakepeare's other greatest characters! Thus unfolds an evening of mayhem, stolen costumes and props, disguise, adventure, comedy, murder, lions, dogs and bears."

An exciting new production from Sport For Jove’s Second Age Project; a chance for Hills Shire area kids to act in their own production. Exit, Pursued By A Bear, devised and directed by Frankie Savige and George Banders, will feature a collection of short scenes from Shakespeare’s collection of plays performed by the kids participating in this project.
