Running Bear
by Hyde Park Theatre

Apr. 11

Lucas has amassed the coveted middle-aged-man spoils: an adoring wife, a devoted son, a successful-but-not excessive career. His return to his hometown for professional recognition promises to be a well-earned victory lap. Emily seeks solitude and relief from the weight of the world hoisted on her teenage shoulders. Her impulsive retreat to a deserted bridge seems like a passable, if not ideal, solution. When these strangers intersect on the footbridge Lucas designed in a suburban Texas park, they are forced to resolve the impasse by confronting past traumas and fading dreams.
