Exit, Pursued by a Bear

Thursdays-Saturdays, 8 p.m. and Sundays, 2 p.m. Continues through Feb. 17

Nan's life in the woods of North Georgia isn't easy. Dominated and abused by her husband Kyle, she's eager to break free from him and live her own life. Now she has a plan to do just that, but first she wants to extract some justice from the lout. Once she has Kyle securely duct-taped to his recliner, she enlists her gay friend Simon to be her emotional cheerleader and Sweetheart, a local stripper who wants to break into acting, to recreate some of the worst moments of her marriage. And after Nan has shown Kyle the error of his ways, she doesn't plan to leave anything behind. With some luck and enough raw meat as bait, the local bear population should take care of any loose ends, like her husband. Lauren Gunderson's Exit, Pursued by a Bear is a dark comedy about a woman empowering herself by any means necessary. The West End Players Guild performs the show at 8 p.m. Thursday through Saturday and at 2 p.m. Sunday (February 8 to 17) at the Union Avenue Christian Church (733 North Union Boulevard; www.westendplayers.org). Tickets are $20 to $25. $20-$25

Farragut North

Sundays, 3 p.m. and Thursdays-Saturdays, 8 p.m. Continues through Feb. 24

Stephen is an up-and-coming press secretary for a surprising presidential candidate. Or maybe that's just Stephen's spin in action. He's constantly spinning something, whether in a "candid" interview with a New York Times reporter or while regaling a backroom audience with stunning tales of his political acumen. He's young and handsome, and with his candidate's impending move to the Oval Office, there's no height he can't metaphorically scale. Of course the higher you rise, the harder the fall. House of Cards creator Beau Willimon wrote his politics 'n' power drama Farragut North after years of working on other people's campaigns, most notably Howard Dean's failed presidential run in 2004. St. Louis Actors Studio presents Farragut North at 8 p.m. Thursday through Saturday and 3 p.m. Sunday (February 8 to 24) at the Gaslight Theater (358 North Boyle Avenue; www.stlas.org). Tickets are $30 to $35. $30-$35
