Anton Chekhov's play "The Bear," also sometimes called “The Boor” or “The Brute”, is a comedy said to have been inspired by his friend Nikolai Nikolaevich Solovtsov’s boorish performance in a French Vaudeville production, not dissimilar to today’s television situation comedies.
Elena Ivanovna Popova, mourning for the death of her cheating lying husband, has sworn to never love another man, or see any man until her death, just to show her deceased husband the meaning of faithfulness and true love.


Well, that is before she meets Grigory Stepanovitch Smirnov. Still owed money by Popova’s deceased husband Smirnov wants repaying and repaying immediately. But can she do this? Should she do this?
They get into an argument about propriety, the capricious female nature and the fickle “female logic” of women. This escalates to Smirnov challenging her to a duel and, which to his surprise, she accepts.


Fast-paced with biting dialogue and exaggerated over the top emotions this hilarious comedy reflected on, and poked fun at, Russian mid nineteenth-century liberal discussions and women’s emancipation. Has much changed in the 1950’s? We shall see.
The Small Spaces Theatre Company was formed in the autumn of 2016 following the successful summer tour of the murder mystery play “The Drop of a Pin” by Carol Sheppard. The Company intends to bring quality theatrical productions to audiences in both towns and rural countryside.
