Tiger At The Gates


Jean Giradoux

Translated by Christopher Fry
Directed by Gary Logan
Oct.3-12

"Everyone always dies for his country. If you have lived in it, well and wisely and actively, you die for it too."

With ancient Troy as the backdrop and the looming Trojan War imminent, the great Trojan diplomat and warrior, Hector, and the fabled Greek philosopher and warrior, Ulysses, are set to meet to see if the conflagration of war can possibly be avoided. Originally entitled The Trojan War Will Not Take Place, Tiger At The Gates is ultimately a play about peace, not war. It asks the question: Are we worthy, of attaining peace?
