By Azuka Theatre (other events)

15 Dates Through May 25, 2014


The Virginia & Harvey Kimmel New Professionals Production
Philadelphia Premiere!
By Kim Rosenstock
Directed by Kevin Glaccum

Tigers Be Still is a quirky, endearing and deliciously dark new comedy, critically acclaimed in its 2010 New York premiere. Sherry finds herself unemployed, overwhelmed and hiding out in her childhood house, but when she gets hired as a substitute art teacher, things begin to look up! Now, if only her mother would get out of bed, her sister would stop stealing her former fiancé’s knick-knacks, her first therapy patient would do his homework, her new boss would leave his gun at home, and someone would catch the escaped tiger, everything would be just perfect.

"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
