Bear Kosik

Bear Kosik started his fourth career as a writer in June 2014. Five of his short plays premiered in NYC festivals in 2016-17. He has (co)authored four novels and a book on democracy that explains how he predicted Donald Trump’s victory over a year before the election. His fiction, poetry, and essays have been published by Third Flatiron Press, River & South Review, Calliope, Twisted Vine, Weasel Press, and others. His screenplays and television scripts have garnered over ten laurels in competitions. Bear’s company, bearly designed llc, publishes books, produces plays, and sells note cards and t-shirts.

In Between Panic and Desire, Mark’s disability benefits are cut, triggering his PTSD. His PTSD was triggered right after he has been discharged from the hospital after having had a psychotic episode 11 days earlier. As 13 scenes unfold, we learn his older sister Caridad has picked up younger sister Esperanza. While waiting for Dr. Greene to make a house call, they talk about their family’s quirks and history. Dr. Greene arrives and tells Mark he has no sisters. Except he does. Where does the reality lie?
Between Panic and Desire is part of the NY SummerFest at The Hudson Theatre Guild, 441 West 26 Street (between 9th and 10th Avenues). Performances are August 7th at 6:15pm, the 11th at 8:30pm and the 12th at 1pm.
