BENGAL TIGER AT THE BAGHDAD ZOO
A New England Premiere by Rajiv Joseph
Directed by Shawn LaCount
October 19 – November 17, 2012
Company One, in residence at the BCA Plaza Theatre, Boston MA
In war-torn Baghdad, the dead aren’t quiet, in fact, they never seem to shut up! Among them stalks the ghost of a quick-witted tiger who haunts the streets, looking for meaning, forgiveness and redemption amidst the ruins. Rajiv Joseph’s groundbreaking new American play ignited Broadway (starring Robin Williams) and explores the perils of human nature through bold black humor and an ethereal vision of war and after life.
