Exit, Pursued by a Bear by Lauren Gunderson
Directed by Paul B. Crook
EXIT, PURSUED BY A BEAR is a contemporary Southern “revenge comedy” that disarms stereotypes of abuse with wild humor. BEAR is part “I Love Lucy,” part Jacobean revenge tragedy, and part feminist power ballad. Set in the North Georgia mountains, the ever-sweet Nan finally flips the story on her abusive husband, Kyle, taking back her life. With the help of her colorful friends, her idolization of Jimmy Carter, and one violent Shakespearean stage direction, this play ain't over till the bears are in pursuit.
