TIGER AT THE GATES


  • BOSTON UNIVERSITY THEATRE (map)

Presented by Boston University College of Fine Arts School of Theatre | By Jean Giradoux, translated by Christopher Fry | Directed by Sidney Friedman | Hector returns from battle as a peacemaker and convinces Ulysses and the populace of the insanity of war. Together they agree that the Trojan War shall not take place. But the poets need a war for their elegies and dirges; the king, because it is custom; the lawyer, because of his honor; and others, for various mean reasons. And so, in spite of all logic, the war erupts. | Running time: 2 hours, 15 minutes. Please be advised that there will be no late seating for this production. All performances will begin at the scheduled curtain time.
