“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
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!
