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

Description

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.
