BENGAL TIGER AT THE BAGHDAD ZOO
by Rajiv Joseph
Directed by Nick Fagan
“When an atheist suddenly finds himself walking around after death,
he has got some serious re-evaluating to do.”
In war-torn Baghdad, the lives of two American Marines and an Iraqi translator are forever changed by an encounter with the ghost of a quick-witted tiger who haunts the city’s ruins.
Violence, anger, greed, forgiveness and redemption are examined in funny, touching and insightful exchanges between man and beast, the living and the dead.
Rajiv Joseph’s ground breaking Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award nominated play explores the perils of human nature and the absurdities of war.
“What kind of twisted bastard creates a predator and then punishes him for preying?”
“Dark and disturbing but also corrosively funny, Rajiv Joseph’s play set during the early days of the Iraq War is an exotic original” – The Hollywood Reporter
