"Exit, Pursued by a Bear"
by Lauren Gunderson

Directed by Torey Hayward & Tenaj Jackson
80 Minutes


Nan has had it with her abusive husband Kyle. With the help of her Queer Bestie and a Stripper she met at a community theater audition she hatches a plan to change things once and for all. All they need is some honey, some meat, and the bears outside the cabin to do the rest. The Radical Buffoons are taking Gunderson's revenge satire far beyond it's logical conclusion by embracing the plays innate late-night-horror-decadence vibe.
