About the Play/Event

Director: James Rice
Run: Apr. 26 — May. 25, 2019 Fridays & Saturdays at 8pm, Sundays at 2pm

If the Coen Brothers decided to set a feminist revenge tale in Atlanta and sprinkle it with Dixie Chicks pixie dust, it might look something like EXIT, PURSUED BY A BEAR, a raucous comedy of friendship, domestic abuse, and performance-as-catharsis.

If the Coen Brothers created a mashup of  Shakespearean revenge tale and outrageous comedy, it would be EXIT, PURSED BY A BEAR. Join Nan as she forces her abusive husband, Kyle, to watch her and her over-the-top cheerleading friend, Simon, reenact scenes from their horrible relationship as he’s tied to his La-Z-Boy.  Will Nan be able to make Kyle see the painful truths of their marriage, or will she leave him to be mauled by a bear at the end to her performance piece?  Come see the playwright of Silent Sky, Lauren Gunderson, as she explores the comedy, the pain, and the chance of being eaten, in this comic gem of a play.
