Springs Ensemble Theatre continues its ninth season with a comedy about depression in Kim Rosenstock’s lively “Tigers Be Still.”
Sherry Wickman, recent masters graduate in art therapy, finds herself back at home when she’s unable to get a job, or a relationship, or anything else worth getting out of bed for.
Then she seizes an opportunity presented by her bed-ridden mother’s ex-boyfriend, Joseph. Joseph wants Sherry to try to help his son, Zack – who is suffering the aftershocks of his mother’s death. Sherry suddenly finds herself in the middle of Zack and Joseph’s family troubles, all while juggling her drunken sister Grace’s drama-filled breakup and the community’s anxiety over a tiger’s escape from the zoo.
But maybe helping all these people through their troubles is the perfect way for Sherry to work out her own problems.
“Tigers Be Still” is an intelligent, sharp comedy directed by SET Ensemble Member Jodi Papproth. Hannah Alden McCullough plays Sherry, the idealistic art therapist working with Zack, played by guest artist Hans Mueh. Together Sherry and Zack struggle through their family issues: Sherry with her sister Grace, played by guest artist Dalianti Moncada, and Zack with his father Joseph, played by SET Vice President Emory John Collinson.
Tickets are $15 with $10 student rush seats, when available, ten minutes prior to the show start time with a valid I.D.
Seating is limited, so SET recommends making reservations early.
