June 26 - July 18, 2015
Exit, Pursued by a Bear
by Lauren Gunderson

Carpenter Square Theatre presents "Exit, Pursued by a Bear," a revenge comedy by Lauren Gunderson, June 26-July 18. All performances are at the theater, located at 800 W. Main in downtown Oklahoma City.

One critic described the play this way: "If the Coen Brothers decided to set a feminist revenge tale in Georgia 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."

Nan wants to teach her abusive husband, Kyle, a lesson. With the help of two friends, she duct tapes her husband to his easy chair to force him to watch as they reenact scenes from the couple's painful past. The piece de resistance of their theatrics includes meat and honey to attract a wild bear.

The play's title is drawn from a unique stage direction in Shakespeare's "The Winter's Tale," and Nan’s plan for revenge includes several theatrical ploys. The comedy is rated PG-13 for strong language.
