Bengal Tiger at the Baghdad Zoo

About This Show

In Bengal Tiger at the Baghdad Zoo, the lives and, in some cases, the afterlives, of two American soldiers, an Iraqi translator, the ghosts of Saddam Hussein’s sons Uday and Ousay, and a Bengal tiger all intersect in a surreal, darkly humorous and gently balanced view of war and its aftermath.
