There’s A Bear On My Chair

23 August – 1 November 2020

We are offering all our online shows for free, but if you’re able to make a donation it would be much appreciated.

A puppet retelling of Ross Collins’s picture book, There’s A Bear On My Chair, created by Toby Olié, in association with Little Angel Theatre.

There’s A Bear On My Chair was shortlisted for the CILIP Kate Greenaway medal in 2016, and is much loved by children and parents alike. Watch as Mouse employs a series of hilarious antics to remove an unwitting polar bear from his favourite chair. Olié’s retelling comes ahead of the hotly-anticipated sequel, There’s A Mouse in My House, this autumn.

This show follows on from Toby Olie’s adaptation of Ross’s book What Does An Anteater Eat? in May.

Toby Olié is a director, designer and puppeteer. He is also co-artistic director of Gyre & Gimble, a theatre company specialising in puppetry. Work as director includes: The Wolves in the Walls (Little Angel Theatre) Vivaldi’s The Four Seasons: A Reimagining (Shakespeare’s Globe), The Hartlepool Monkey (Gyre & Gimble, UK tour), The Elephantom (National Theatre/West End) and associate puppetry director of War Horse (West End).
