Polar Bears: A Heartwarming Holiday Tragedy

A true story about a very big lie

Presented by Actors Basement:

‘Polar Bears,’ written and directed by David Templeton (‘Wretch Like Me,” ‘Pinky,’ ‘Mary Shelley’s Body’) and performed by Chris Schloemp, is a poignant and hilarious one-actor tour-de-force about family, fatherhood, Christmas, cookies, love, loss, holiday decorations, and the age old parental question, “Is there a right time for my kids to stop believing in Santa Claus?”


“Extremely personal and deeply emotional, by turns heartbreaking and hilarious, David Templeton’s ‘Polar Bears’ may not restore your belief in Santa Claus, but could restore your belief in parenthood.”
Daedalus Howell, North Bay Bohemian

“Laced with fun and humor, ‘Polar Bears’ is a beautifully crafted show, that will bring laughter and tears, usually at the same time. ’Polar Bears’ grabs at the heart and tickles the funny bone, a perfect mix for the holidays. It gives us another reason for the season – belief in the power of love.”
Suzanne Angeo, Sonoma County Gazette
