Mad March Hare in Association with Red Line Productions present
Bengal Tiger At The Baghdad Zoo
by RAJIV JOSEPH
DIRECTOR: CLAUDIA BARRIE
'A majestic, richly conceived play with fanciful humour and clear-eyed compassion' – New York Times
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 ground-breaking play explores both the power and the perils of human nature and considers the enduring effect of violent acts and the impenetrable mysteries of the afterlife itself.
