Bears is a play from Alberta about pipelines.

That description probably has most picturing a musical where a chorus line of blond, blue-eyed Oilers cheerleaders stomp their field boots over a topographical map of B.C., with the big showstopper bitumen spurting out of a pipeline and showering down upon them.

But Bears is an acclaimed theatre piece that incorporates a chase story about an Indigenous oilpatch worker named Floyd (Sheldon Elter) on the run from an accident inquiry into a separate quest tale about discovering Indigenous identity. It all takes place along the Kinder Morgan Trans-Mountain pipeline route from the oilsands to the B.C. coast.
