The Pulitzer Prize nominated comic drama

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 groundbreaking new American play explores both the power and the perils of human nature.

“Set in the chaotic first days of the American invasion of Iraq, this boldly imagined, harrowing and surprisingly funny drama considers the long afterlife of violent acts, as well as the impenetrable mysteries of the afterlife itself.” —NY Times.

“Joseph’s metaphoric inventiveness is magnificently displayed throughout, and the kaleidoscope of figures and images bespeaks a purely theatrical imagination.” —LA Times.

“Tragic yet darkly comic and highly imaginative…Joseph has created a theatrical landscape that is totally different from the harrowing war reports to which the nightly news has accustomed us.” —CurtainUp.

“The bottom line: Dark and disturbing but also corrosively funny, Rajiv Joseph’s play, set during the early days of the Iraq War, is an exotic original.” —Hollywood Reporter.
