The Lady or the Tiger

(loosely) inspired by the story of Frank Stockton


premiered July 2019 - read a review here!

You step out into the arena. Your teeth ache from the cold. You look into the crowd. Find a face. Her face. Got it.

And in that moment, you know. She has the answer.

By that power of quick perception given to those whose souls are one, you know she knows which door will decide your fate.

One door hides the tiger. One the lady.

She had known she would be asked and she had decided what she would answer. Without the slightest hesitation, she moves her hand to the right.

So, what’s behind the door? The Lady or the Tiger?

A beachside-round-the-back-open-air spectacular, exploring snakes eating themselves, our love of watching each other suffer and spoilers. Welcome to the world of The Lady or the Tiger.
