Tigers Be Still
For City Theatre
This is a funny dark take on depression. There are 23 different scenes and some are quite quick. Overall you have 8 different locales. Most of this was accomplished with minimal props and lighting changes. The idea of light as a metaphor was very important to the director Matt Morrow. The set has an outline of light and this even goes around the windows and doors. For 2 locales the idea of a "Lite-Brite Box" was employed and we had over 700 points of fiber optic "stars". While being a comedy the overall level of light got brighter as the characters in the play came out of their depression. The metaphor of light seeping into their homes/lives was helping to "heal" them. It is a funny piece.
