Lookingglass Ensemble Member and Artistic Director of New Work Heidi Stillman joined Suzanne Ross, Adam Ericksen and Bob Koehler to discuss the play at the center of the next Raven Theater outing, Bengal Tiger at the Baghdad Zoo. This ferocious and darkly funny play examines war as an act of human nature with the setting of the war in Iraq. An army brat, born while her father was in Vietnam, the aunt of a 21-year-old nephew who recently had a tour in Afghanistan, and the sister of a humanitarian worker who is often a first responder in war torn areas, Heidi understands the many consequences of war. The first recipient of The Raven Award for Excellence in Arts and Entertainment for her adaption of Dostoyevsky’s The Brothers Karamazov, Heidi was a most welcome and entertaining guest.
