Name: Tigers Be Still
Date: September 7, 2017 - October 1, 2017
Event Description:
Tigers Be Still By Kim Rosenstock Directed by Jayne Stevens Sherry Wickman, a young woman who has just completed her master’s degree in art therapy, has been job-searching for months. Unemployed and overwhelmed, she retreats to her childhood bed and remains there until an unexpected employment opportunity gives her a renewed sense of purpose and hope. 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. “[Rosenstock's] subtly funny dialogue and the vivid, truthful characters keep the play grounded in prickly emotional authenticity.” “… an endearing new play.” —NY Times. “An offbeat and nuanced comedy…Rosenstock finds fresh humor and anguish in two outrageously troubled suburban families in a world of real danger.” —Newsday. “Rosenstock writes clever comic dialogue in a voice that is too smart to be cute. There's something both sad and wise, after all, about redefining a 'mellow' mood as meaning 'paralyzed with depression.’” —Variety. Sponsored by Jean and Bob Macy
