Black Revenge Comedy Will Heat Up The Ten Fifteen Stage

Described as “Dixie Chicks’ “Goodbye Earl” meets 9-5”, Exit, Pursued by a Bear is a spirited comedy of friendship, domestic abuse, and performance-as-catharsis. Director Jolene Magee leads the four person cast through a raucous extended one-act, that will make the audience laugh, cry, and cheer. Stage Managed by Shey Lionheart; Julianne Bodner, Slab Slabinski, Jennifer Mikel, and Mick Alderman round out the production team.

About the Show: Nan has decided to teach her abusive husband Kyle a lesson. With the help of her friend Simon (acting as her emotional — and actual — cheerleader) and a stripper named Sweetheart, she tapes Kyle to a chair and forces him to watch as they reenact scenes from their painful past. In the piece de resistance, they plan to cover the room in meat and honey so Kyle will be mauled by a bear. Through this night of emotional trials and ridiculous theatrics, Nan and Kyle are both freed from their past in this smart, dark revenge comedy.

Nan – Deborah Jensen
Simon – Dylan Disch
Kyle – Everett Fitz
Sweetheart – Shailyn Duffy
