Black Bear Island by Karissa Murrell Myers


Hello,
 
We would like to add our listing to Theatre In Chicago:
 
 

“BLACK BEAR ISLAND” BY KARISSA MURRELL MYERS

Co-produced in partnership with Silk Road Cultural Center

Guest-directed by Dan Washelesky and Jonathan Shaboo

Black Bear Island is haunted by a monstrous man-killing bear, or so everyone says. Amitra never believed the myth about her old hometown. But when Warren, her estranged childhood sweetheart, dies mysteriously and bequeaths her everything he owned, she returns to the island one last time. As the forest begins to engulf the house and her past begins to collide with the present, she is determined to find out who Warren really was and what happened to him. This gothic magical-realism suspense thriller explores regret, the unreliableness of our own memories, and the paths we choose to become who we are.
