Bengal Tiger at the Baghdad Zoo

bengal tiger at baghdad zoo

It’s 2003 and two US marines are left with an Iraqi interpreter to guard the Baghdad zoo, which has been decimated by American forces. Left behind, the titular tiger is a lead character in Rajiv Joseph’s Pulitzer-nominated drama. (Robin Williams played the part during the show’s 2011 Broadway run.) Various characters die violently in a juxtaposition of war zone drama with surreal bits of the afterlife. (Saddam Hussein’s maniacal son Uday appears as one of several ghosts.) The 2009 play is getting a single-weekend performance at AS220 courtesy of Romp of Otters, Brown’s graduate theater community.
