About this show

In author Lauren Gunderson's own words, the play Exit, Pursued by a Bear is part "I Love Lucy", part Jacobean revenge tragedy, part feminist manifesto, part beautiful ballet, part nature special, and part 80s power ballad. Nan Carter is a woman at wit's end, married to underemployed deer-huntin', Jack-guzzlin' no-account husband Kyle, who at some point in their marriage began to take out his frustrations -- with a slap here, a busted lip there -- on his wife. With the unusual help from two motivated friends, the sassy and resourceful Nan demands redemption by teaching her spiteful husband a lesson once and for all.
