Teddy Bear Blues Don't Last
Teddy Bear Blues Don’t Last - “A riveting theatrical experience”
Another shrine…and another…and another… Young lives snuffed out violently, and for what? Your brother, a sister or cousin, a best friend… Photos on a tee shirt, forever tattoos, and empty chairs at the dinner table or in the classroom are all constant reminders of one who once was, and now is gone. Street corners become sacred ground as the memories are galvanized with silk flowers, deflated helium balloons, bottles, and teddy bears in the hope that the dearly departed will R.I.P. “Teddy Bear Blues Don’t Last” pulls back the curtain to tell one young man’s story (revealing family secrets), and to give a face to his shrine keeper. It will make you reflect and consider the days of our lives. You will walk away with a different perspective as you think, perhaps, “there but for the grace of God…”, or your civic and/or moral consciousness will be raised to decide that we as a community must do something or do more to stop whatever the shrine basis is that’s killing our kids and impacting our what-might-have-been future. Playwright/director Stephen Byrd gently but powerfully confronts the issue as he synthesizes visual elements, gospel, contemporary and jazz music, and thought provoking dialogue to tell one young man’s story. This play will make you laugh, cry, and remember these characters long after you have met them in this dynamic theatrical presentation. Don’t miss out on this play – there will be only 2 shows!!!
