About the play: Little Bernhard is a six year old farm boy, taken in by his aunt and uncle after his parents die. Ignored by his busy adopted parents, and bullied by his step brother, Little Bernhard must walk five km to school and back each day. Along the way is the home of Old Nettie, who everyone in the town fears and calls a witch. One day, Little Bern gets lost in a snowstorm, and is saved by none other than Old Nettie. Bern comes to know her true story, of her difficult life, and her son Bello who got lost in a snowstorm himself and never returned. Bern then returns the favor and stands up for her against the town. Based on stories from the Mennonite Ukraine of the 1920’s, BELLO is set in fable-like world. Told in shared narrative by three actors, the play is a parable on overcoming our fears of others who are not like us
