Review from Joan

It's an interesting and thought provoking play. The script is somewhat uneven, as was the casting. The actor who plays the tiger is outstanding - he is the heart of the play, and he carries it. I wish directors would learn that shouting and...continued

I thought the acting was outstanding. The Tiger was especially powerful and funny. Each character brought their own special journey to life and each had a different message.

Quotes & Highlights

“It’s a uniformly strong cast, and LaCount, the artistic director of Company One, is attuned to the play’s complexity.” —Boston Globe

“At times it sounds like a war play whose foul-mouthed Marines often evoke the bedeviled men in David Rabe’s Vietnam trilogy. But it’s also redolent of theater of the absurd. It’s an inquiry into the existence, including the possible meaning of God, conducted by a tiger/philosopher who evokes Samuel Beckett. It’s a Wagnerian and Tolkien-like saga built around the whereabouts of a pistol made of gold that symbolizes greed and violence. It’s also an exploration of the work and responsibilities of the artist/playwright in the person of Saddam’s gardener, the shaper of the topiary garden, who becomes an interpreter for the American military during the invasion. The script is intelligent and witty; the characters memorable.” —The Arts Fuse

“Yes, Park’s tiger is a metaphor, even an allegory; what keeps him vital is a shamanic zest for inhabiting his ‘tigerness’ both body and, well, soul. His posture, ruminations, one-liners convinced me that if a tiger’s soul could be experienced by his distant human cousins it would look and feel something like this one: padding about, philosophizing, expostulating on Company One’s stage.” —Artscope


This play contains coarse language, violence, sexual themes and loud noises. Guns are shot during the performance.
