What an excellent show!

The story was great, the dialogue was funny and the acting was superb.

I've been to a lot of shows at the SF Playhouse, and this was one of the best ever.

Description

Critically acclaimed in its 2010 New York premiere, Tigers Be Still is a quirky, endearing new comedy. Sherry Wickman is a young woman who expects the perfect career and life to fall into place immediately upon earning her master’s degree in art therapy. Instead, Sherry finds herself unemployed, overwhelmed and back at home hiding out in her twin-sized childhood bed. But when Sherry 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, her very first therapy patient would do just one of his take-home assignments, her new boss would leave his gun at home, and someone would catch the tiger that escaped from the local zoo, everything would be just perfect.

Kim Rosenstock is a 2010 MFA graduate of the Yale School of Drama, where her produced plays include Every Other Hamlet in the Universe, and Lone Pilots of Roosevelt Field. She served as Artistic Director for the 2009 season of Yale Summer Cabaret for which she conceived and co-wrote the original musical Fly By Night. Her plays have been developed by Portland Center Stage’s JAW Festival, The Kennedy Center, The Old Vic in association with The Public Theater, Ars Nova, New York Stage & Film, The Playwrights Realm, and Theater Masters. In 2009 she was a finalist for the Wasserstein Prize and the recipient of Yale’s Eugene O’Neill Memorial Scholarship.

In spring 2010, Tigers Be Still was part of Portland Stage Company’s Little Festival of the Unexpected and subsequently received its world premiere production at Roundabout Underground in Fall 2010. Prior to pursuing playwriting, Rosenstock worked for several years in Manhattan as Associate Producer of Ars Nova, where she developed and produced new works of music, comedy and theater. A graduate of Amherst College, she first began writing plays under the mentorship of Constance Congdon. She is originally from Baldwin, Long Island.
