 A B O U T


Linda and David are a typical middle class, middle aged couple, with a once-perfect son.

But since he returned from University, their son Michael is a different person altogether. They don't understand how he can have changed so much and he has a new way of expressing himself. Premiered at the Royal Court Theatre in 2004, Bear Hug is a bold and tender story about alienation, families and learning to live with change.
