Loras Players present “Tigers Be Still”

The Loras Players present Tigers Be Still by Kim Rosenstock, Thursday–Saturday, March 30–April 1 at 7:30 p.m.

Unemployed and overwhelmed, Sherry retreats to her childhood bed and remains there until an unexpected employment opportunity gives her a renewed sense of purpose and hope. Now if only her mother would come downstairs, her sister would get off the couch, her patient would do one take-home assignment, her boss would leave his gun at home, and someone would catch that escaped tiger, everything would be just perfect.

A quippy farce, Tigers Be Still attempts to frankly address issues of depression, functional living, loss, closure, and the health and unhealthy ways to cope and heal. Playwright Rosenstock is no stranger to the situation comedy, known for her work as a writer on New Girl and episodes of Only Murders in the Building and GLOW.

The cast includes senior Taylor Hrabak (as Sherry), sophomore Artie Kerchmar (Zack), sophomore Ellie Coleman (Grace), and graduate student Michael Wilmarth (Joseph). Decker directs and sound designs the production with scenic and lighting design by guest artist Tracey Richardson, costume design by Coleman, and stage management by sophomore Emerald Barnes-Seger and assistance by sophomore Kat Gomez.

Tigers Be Still runs Thursday–Saturday, March 30–April 1 at 7:30 p.m. in St. Joseph Auditorium, Hoffmann Hall on the Loras College campus. General admission is $10; Loras-affiliated admission is free.

NOTE: This comedic production includes mild adult language and discussion of depression and suicide.
