"Savagely funny and visionary new work of American theater... A majestic, richly conceived play with fanciful humor and clear-eyed compassionâ€ť
â€“ The New York Times
â€śA gripping, ferocious new dramaâ€¦ Refreshingly topical and stylistically daring, Bengal Tiger never loses its sense of wonder or humor.â€ť
â€“ Time Out New York
Two US Marines and an Iraqi translator are thrust into a world of greed, mystery and betrayal after an encounter with a now-deceased but still very pissed-off tiger. The streets of war-torn Baghdad are filled with ghosts, riddles and wry humor in this ground-breaking play that explores the power and perils of human nature.
