Bay Village Community Theater presents 'The Bear'

Russia’s well-known playwright Anton Chekhov may be most famous for his serious plays like “The Seagull,” but did you know that he also wrote hilarious one-act farces about life and love in Russia in the 1800s?

Bay Village Community Theater will perform Chekhov’s “The Bear: A Joke in One Act” as part of its “All the World’s a Stage[d Reading]” series. There will be two performances: Saturday, May 19 at 2 p.m. at O’Neill Healthcare Bay Village, 605 Bradley Road; and Sunday, May 20 at 6 p.m. at Mojo’s Coffee and More, 600 Dover Center Road. The play features Tim Peebles, Michael Strama and Jessica Williams and is directed by Tim Jones.

Both performances are open to the public. Admission is free; donations for Bay Village Community Theater will be accepted at both performances.
