'And I was going to stop.
I was only going to do it once.
Just for the story, because why not, because anyone would've.
I think anyone would've.'
On a rainy Wednesday evening, Cally sits at her local pub waiting for her best friend.
She notices someone in the corner.
She recognises them.
It can't be them though, can it?
It isn't. This doesn't happen.
She won't go over. She won't.
Before I Was a Bear is a new play about friendship, sexuality and hot TV detectives.
