BENGAL TIGER AT THE BAGHDAD ZOO

January 30 – March 17, 2013

Written by Rajiv Joseph
Directed by Ensemble Member Heidi Stillman

2010 Pulitzer Prize Finalist

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.

Savagely funny and visionary new work of American theater… A majestic, richly conceived play with fanciful humor and clear-eyed compassion

– The New York Times

A gripping, ferocious new drama… Refreshingly topical and stylistically daring, Bengal Tiger never loses its sense of wonder or humor.

– Time Out New York
