a comedy about depression!

Directed by Daniel Burson

When you start a new job, you don’t expect to have to worry about a tiger lurking in the streets, kid-napped chihuahuas, and a rifle toting boss. Tigers Be Still takes us on a journey with Sherry Wickman, a 24-year-old girl who has climbed her way out of depression and is beginning her new job as an art teacher. Now she just has to figure out how to live her new life while dealing with those things, plus a sister and mother who won’t leave the house and a therapy patient who doesn’t want to be there. This is a warm, quirky comedy that will have you singing Danger Zone all the way home.

Tickets: $10
