Tigers Be Still
West Coast Premiere
by Kim Rosenstock
directed by Amy Glazer
MUST CLOSE SEPT. 10th!
Press Opening: June 25th
Critically acclaimed in its 2010 New York premiere, Tigers Be Still is a quirky, endearing and deliciously dark new comedy. Sherry Wickman, a young woman 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.Read the Press Release
