Tigers Be Still

Directed by Justin Anderson

In the ferociously funny world of suburban dysfunction, things are looking up for overly eager Sherry Wickman, as this young woman with a master’s degree in art therapy gets a job as a substitute art teacher. Now if only her mother would come downstairs, her drunk sister would get off the couch, her patient would do 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, life would be just perfect!

Producer’s Quote

Aurora Theatre Producing Artistic Director Anthony Rodriguez on the Harvel Lab Series: “The relationship between Aurora Theatre and Georgia Gwinnett College is one of my most rewarding accomplishments. The Harvel Lab Series gives us the opportunity to produce the most exciting, contemporary plays and provides us with another opportunity to cultivate the next generation of theatergoers. With over 9000 students enrolled at GGC this year, we continue to expand the scope of services that we offer young adults interested in the performing arts. This type of outreach would not be possible without the continued support of GGC.”
