Cally wants to tell you about her life.

She is a bear now, but she wasn’t always. Before, she had sports days, complicated friendships, sex (good and bad) & Tesco energy drinks mixed with cheap vodka. She was just like you, before. Then one night Cally is at a pub in Finsbury Park, and someone walks in. Someone you wouldn’t believe.

Anyone would have done it. Even you.

After a successful run at the well-loved Bunker Theatre in 2019, Before I Was A Bear, Eleanor Tindall’s Stage Debut Award-nominated play directed by Aneesha Srinivasan and starring Jacoba Williams returns. Don’t miss this funny, brutal & compelling coming-of-age story about friendship, mistakes and all-consuming celebrity crushes.
