 Starting this week, a production like never before is coming to Henderson State University’s Theatre. It’s a play called “Tigers Be Still”, by Kim Rosenstock. 

This production features actors Madi Moore, Savannah Reynolds, Brandon Curtis, and J.L. Cason.

“Tigers Be Still” can only be described as a comedy about depression. 

It focuses on the misadventures of Sherry, an art therapist and recent grad student, who ends up finding herself back at her mother’s house, depressed and waiting for her dream job. 

When she does find a job, however, there are issues that come along with it. 

These issues include dealing with Sherry’s recently dumped and depressed sister, new boss, new patient with anger issues, and a tiger that recently escaped from the zoo. 

Sherry shows the audience throughout the show how she gets over this depression regardless of the chaos going on around her. This production will surely be one to bring out a range of feelings within the audience. 

“Tigers Be Still” will be coming to Henderson on Feb. 22-24 and Feb. 26 at 7:30 p.m., and on Feb. 25 at 2:30 p.m.. This production will be held in the studio theatre in Arkansas Hall.
