ABOUT THE PLAY:
“The lives of two American Marines and an Iraqi translator are forever changed by an encounter with a quick-witted tiger who haunts the streets of war-torn Baghdad attempting to find meaning, forgiveness and redemption amidst the city’s ruins. Rajiv Joseph’s groundbreaking play explores both the power and the perils of human nature.”
“Set in the chaotic first days of the American invasion of Iraq, this boldly imagined, harrowing and surprisingly funny dram considers the long afterlife of violent acts, as well as the impenetrable mysteries of the afterlife itself.” –The New York Times
Tiger—Tiger wears clothes. Nothing feline about him. The Tiger can be any age, although ideally he is older, scrappy, past his prime, yet still tough. He can be any race except Middle-Eastern. His language is loose, casual; his profanity is second nature.
Tom—American soldier. Early 20s to early 30s.
Kev—American soldier. Early 20s to early 30s.
Uday Hussein/Iraqi Man—Iraqi, 30s.
