‘The Winter Bear’ Takes New Look at Tragic Issues

Tim Bodony, APRN – Galena

95-year old elder Sidney Huntington had a front row seat when a play based on his life and ideals hit the stage in Galena earlier this month.   A scaled-down version of the play debuted in Fairbanks in 2008, and the current version of the production is now showing in Anchorage.

The play is called “The Winter Bear”, and among the many themes that it confronts is suicide.

As Tim Bodony reports from Galena, the play suggests that old customs might be used to solve modern problems.
