Theater on the Lake: The Chicago Summer Theater Festival presents 8 plays in 8 weeks, showcasing a strong cross section of Chicago's rich off-Loop theater community. The New Colony presents The Bear Suit of Happiness by Evan Linder; Conceived and Directed by Sean Kelly.  In 1943, Woody, a young gay American, enlists in the army.  After being shipped to a remote Pacific Island, he is given an order: "Put up a show to entertain the men.  Keep it simple.  Needs music.  And they like drag."  Woody becomes a one-man war as he fights to write a show worthy of his fellows' last laughs.  Torn between fantasy and reality, his silly camp show grows to be a dream of an impossibly hospitable world.
