The University of Alberta Studio Theatre presents the Canadian premiere of Rajiv Joseph's brilliant drama - Bengal Tiger at the Baghdad Zoo at the Timms Centre for the Arts, playing now through December 8, 2012.

Both savage and atrociously funny, this 2010 Pulitzer Prize finalist takes a fierce look at the power and perils of human nature, war, and the American Dream.
