Nan decides its finally time to leave her abusive husband Kyle and make a run for it but not until she’s tied him up, covered him in honey and invited the neighborhood bear in for a snack. Lauren Gunderson’s gut-busting, outrageous revenge comedy about dreams, healing, and the simple joy of tying a dickhead to the living room chair.

“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.” - ArtsCritic Atlanta

“BEAR is RAW and HILIRIOUS” - American Theatre Magazine”

Kyle – Joey Hood; Simon - Stephen Mercantel; Nan – Molly Karrasch; Sweetheart – TBA
