Performance Dates
This ferocious, groundbreaking new play follows the intertwined lives of a quick-witted tiger, two homesick American marines, and a troubled Iraqi gardener as they roam the streets of war-torn Baghdad in search of meaning, redemption, and a toilet seat made of gold. A Pulitzer Prize finalist and a recent Broadway hit, Bengal Tiger delivers a haunting look at the aftermath of violence and what it means to be caught in the wrong place at the wrong time. “Gripping…an evening of lyrical beauty amid horror…blisteringly strong work from [the] cast” - Washingtonian. “A ravishing production…The cast is on fire” – DC Theater Scene. “Do not miss this brilliant production!” – DC Metro Theater Arts. “[A] wholly original black comedy…resonant…[an] impressive ensemble” - Washington Post.
