15 June – 3 July 2011

This vivid re-imaging of the 19th century Brothers Grimm classic tells the story of THE BEARSKINNER, a young soldier who has lost everything to war – except his life. But, when the devil makes him a treacherous wager, he begins a seven-year journey to discover that a life without love, death or personal hygiene is not worth living. Wrapped in a bearskin, he is confronted by the Devil’s mistresses at every turn as they attempt to seduce Jim into breaking his fiery pact.

Set amidst a lounge bar forest of fake Christmas trees THE BEARSKINNER is a dark comedy that incorporates live music, bad poetry and outrageous innuendo to tell a haunting tale of the relentless human struggle between good and evil, and the power of love.
