Bengal Title PNG.png


12 April - 6 May

Presented in association with Mad March Hare Theatre Company, by arrangement with Hal Leonard Australia Pty Ltd, on behalf of Dramatists Play Service Inc, New York

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.
