CRT Play Reading Series Concludes with ‘Tigers Be Still’

Clackamas Repertory Theatre closes is third annual Contemporary American Play Reading Series on Sunday, June 17, with “Tigers Be Still” a new play by Kim Rosenstock, writer of Fox TV’s “New Girl.” 

“Tigers Be Still” is a comedy about a young woman, who after having difficulty finding a job retreats to her childhood home and stays there until an unexpected opportunity gives her a renewed sense of hope and optimism. Now if only her mother would come downstairs, her seldom sober sister would get off the couch, her first art therapy patient would do just one assignment, her boss would leave his gun at home and someone would catch the tiger that escaped from the zoo, life would be sweet.

Produced around the country to critical acclaim after its New York debut in 2010, the show has been hailed as "sweet, affecting and darkly comic" by the Chicago Tribune, and "piercing,…ferocious and devastatingly hilarious" by The New York Times. The reading is fully staged, with costumes, lights, sound and set pieces; but the actors hold their scripts.

The reading is at 3 p.m. in the Osterman Theatre, followed with talk backs with the actors and director. Tickets are $8 each and are available online at www.clackamasrep.org or at the box office in the Niemeyer Center. For more information call 503-594-3915.
