Tigers Be Still at Live Arts

Wednesday, November 20 - 8:00 PM

Bankers Insurance & Auto-Owners Insurance present


TIGERS BE STILL is the story of how Sherry Wickman stopped being a total disaster and got her life on track and did NOT let feelings of overwhelming anxiousness and loneliness and uselessness, like, totally eat her brain.

In suburbia, 24-year-old Sherry is finally putting her masters degree in art therapy to use in her first job as a middle school art teacher. She’s especially excited about her special assignment as a therapist for the principal’s son Zack, who has anger issues and works at the local CVS. Meanwhile, Sherry’s older sister is a couch potato with two obsessions: bourbon and sabotaging her ex-fiancé’s life. And upstairs, their ex-beauty queen mother lives as a recluse in her own bedroom. Now if Sherry’s first patient would do just one of his take-home assignments, her new boss would leave his gun at home, and someone would catch the tiger that escaped from the local zoo, everything would be A-OK!

“An offbeat and nuanced comedy. . . Rosenstock finds fresh humor and anguish in two outrageously troubled suburban families in a world of real danger.” —Newsday
“[Rosenstock’s] subtly funny dialogue and the vivid, truthful characters keep the play grounded in prickly emotional authenticity.” —The New York Times
