Tigers Be Still is a quirky, endearing and deliciously dark new comedy, critically acclaimed in its 2010 New York premiere. Sherry finds herself unemployed, overwhelmed and hiding out in her childhood house, but when she gets hired as a substitute art teacher, things begin to look up! Now, if only her mother would get out of bed, her sister would stop stealing her former fiancé’s knick-knacks, her first therapy patient would do his homework, her new boss would leave his gun at home, and someone would catch the escaped tiger, everything would be just perfect.

“In Azuka Theatre's funny, beautifully acted, and thoroughly delightful production, Kevin Glaccum's direction blends moments of disturbing humor and optimism into an otherwise familiar tale of familial woe.”
Jim Rutter, The Philadelphia Inquirer

“TIGERS BE STILL has a unique energy that carries even corny jokes well, and ultimately presents thoughtful commentary on life, depression, and the times in between.”

Full Review

“Rosenstock writes clever comic dialogue in a voice that is too smart to be cute. There's something both sad and wise, after all, about redefining a 'mellow' mood as meaning 'paralyzed with depression.” – Variety
