Marie Anne Chiment's beautiful renderings for Bengal Tiger at the Baghdad Zoo
This "At a Glance" Gallery features the stunning rendering by costume designer Professor Marie Anne Chiment for our production of Bengal Tiger at the Baghdad Zoo. Described by the Los Angeles Times as "the most original play about the Iraq war," Bengal Tiger at the Baghdad Zoo is an imaginative exploration of the power and perils of human nature. The lives of two American soldiers, Tom (Tim Dugan) and Kev (Darryl Gene Daughtry) and an Iraqi translator (Ibrahim Miari) are forever changed by an encounter with a clever, sardonic tiger (Alice Gatling) haunting the streets of war-torn Baghdad. Tragic and disturbing, darkly comic and highly theatrical, the play is a meditation on life, death, and the afterlife. The cast is completed with Charlie DelMarcelle (Uday/Iraqi Man), Kayla Tarpley (Iraqi Teenager/Hadia), and Stephanie Iozzia (Iraqi Woman/Leper). The production is directed by David Girard with scenic design by John Michael Eddy, lighting design by Liz Phillips, sound design by Mark Valenzela, and projection design by Michael Long.
