by Rajiv Joseph
directed by Bennett Cognato

The lives of two American Marines and an Iraqi translator are forever changed by an encounter with a quick-witted tiger who haunts the streets of war-torn Baghdad attempting to find meaning, forgiveness and redemption amidst the city's ruins. Rajiv Joseph's groundbreaking new American play explores both the power and the perils of human nature. The New York Times writes, "This boldly imagined, harrowing and surprisingly funny drama is wonderfully daring."
This marks the directorial debut of Bennett Cognato whose Brookfield Theatre credits include "Cabaret", "Rent", "Company", "8", "Hair", and "Dog Sees God".
