Two U.S. Marines and an Iraqi translator are thrust into a world of greed, mystery, and betrayal after encountering a very angry tiger that escaped from the zoo. The streets of war-torn Baghdad are filled with ghosts and riddles in this wryly funny ground-breaking play that explores the power and perils of human nature. “A gripping, ferocious new drama…Refreshingly topical and stylistically daring, Bengal
Tiger never loses its sense of wonder or humor,” Time Out New York.
