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 finally gets hired as a substitute art teacher, things begin to brighten up. Now if only her mother would come downstairs, her sister would recover from her love affair with Jack Daniels and get off the couch, her very first art therapy patient would do just one of his take-home assignments, her new boss - the school principal - would leave his gun at home, and someone would catch the tiger that escaped from the local zoo, everything would be just about perfect.
Described by BackStage.com as, "a sweet little comedy about depression," Tigers be Still is, also, "a funny, ferocious, saber-toothed play you should pounce on."
