"Tigers Be Still," a play by Kim Rosenstock. Synopsis: A ferociously funny play from New Girl writer Kim Rosenstock: centers around Sherry Wickman, who’s recently earned a degree in art therapy, only to find herself moving back in with her family. Matters take a turn for the better once she gets hired as a substitute art teacher. Now if only her mother would come downstairs, her sister would get off the couch, her first patient would do one of his assignments, her boss would leave his gun at home and someone would catch the tiger that escaped from the local zoo, everything would be just perfect.
Sherry, 24 - a quirky, kind, insecure yet persistent young woman; she’s a survivor who battles her own depression through her belief in the healing power of art; recently earned her master’s degree in art therapy but finds herself moving back home and trying to keep her life and her dysfunctional family together; in short, she is a young woman making her first attempt at becoming an adult.
Joseph, 50 - Zack’s father; a middle school principal, authoritative and decisive on the job; he’s also an extremely caring father who struggles with his own grief, and to communicate with his grieving son; has a soft spot for his old flame, Sherry’s mother.
Zack, 18 - blunt, vulnerable teenage boy with anger management issues; he’s sharp-edged with a lightning-fast intellect and a dark sense of humor; a good-hearted kid who is currently lost, acting out and in denial due to his mother’s recent death.
Grace, 29 - Sherry’s older sister, depressed; recently dumped by her boyfriend, lives on her mother’s sofa in a fetal position, curled up around a bottle of whiskey, venting, singing karaoke, and watching endless replays of “Top Gun"; she’s been stealing her ex’s valuables, and recently kidnapped his two Chihuahuas, hoping it will motivate him to return her phone calls.
