Bengal Tiger at the Baghdad Zoo

By Rajiv Joseph

Directed by Suzan Kurry

In the year 2003, a tiger lives at the Baghdad Zoo. He talks to the audience about how the other animals from the zoo had fled only to be shot and killed by the invading soldiers.

Bengal Tiger at the Baghdad Zoo is a story of war, greed, friendship, loyalty and ghosts.
