Grab a seat on love's merry-go-round as Moliere's rarely performed gem Lovers' Quarrels makes its way to the Boston Center for the Arts. Translated into English verse by Pulitzer Prize-winner Richard Wilbur, this play tells of a young woman named Ascagne, who, for the sake of a family inheritance, has been forced to spend her life disguised as a man. But after she falls in love with the rejected suitor in pursuit of her sister, Ascagne will begin an adventurous masquerade filled with witty comic mix-ups and jealous rivalries. Learn More

I went with my husband and daughter and we all really enjoyed the play. She has recently graduated and is struggling to find a job so it thought it might be some comic relief. It was humorous and very poingant at the same time. Loved all the characters - Becca and Kelley as the sisters were a joy to watch.
Quotes & Highlights
“Tigers Be Still offers a painfully funny portrait of ordinary people trying to make their way in a suburban wasteland, stalked by the tigers of depression. It is a funny, ferocious, saber-toothed play you should pounce on.”—Backstage.com
Tigers Be Still is a quirky, endearing and deliciously dark new comedy. Sherry Wickman, after earning her master’s degree in art therapy, finds herself unemployed, overwhelmed and back at home hiding out in her twin-sized childhood bed. But when Sherry finally gets hired as a substitute art teacher, things begin to brighten up. Now if only her mother would come downstairs, her sister would get off the couch after her broken engagement, her very first art therapy patient would complete an assignment, her new boss – the school principal – would leave his rifle at home, and someone would catch the tiger that escaped from the local zoo, everything would be just fine.
