This play is based upon the life of Frances Slocum, a young girl who is taken in the early 1800’s to live among Native Americans in the Mid-Western U.S. The play follows her personal journey through two different cultures and looks at each through the eyes of a young child. Pollyanna is thrilled to be working with award-winning playwright Lou Clark again to bring her newest play for young audiences to life. YOUNG BEAR is sure to have young audiences thinking deeply about the definitions of family and belonging. The story of YOUNG BEAR, while based in a true story, is designed to take children on an imaginative journey through a different time and place. Best for students grades 2-5.
