Description

Audience and critical buzz brought national attention to this explosive world premiere at the Kirk Douglas Theatre last spring.

Now enhanced for the Taper stage, this remarkable play throws two homesick soldiers, a tormented Iraqi and a brooding tiger together into a revelatory situation that is both hysterical and macabre, soul-wrenching and lyrical.

Directed by Tony-nominee Moisés Kaufman (Broadway sensations I Am My Own Wife and 33 Variations), this production dares you not to look away from its honest and hauntingly theatrical depiction of the aftermath of war.
