A teenage polar bear sets out on her own...to New Jersey. A play that's a little bit about global warming, but mostly about fitting in when you're different. A Polar Bear in New Jersey was presented as part of Keen Teens 2013, a unique and free educational theatre program, run by the Drama Desk and Obie award-winning Keen Company. Keen Teens seeks to improve the quality of plays written for high school students by commissioning scripts from highly regarded playwrights, and gives students the opportunity to work with professional artists in an Off Broadway setting.
