The Last Tiger in Haiti

World-Premiere Play

The Last Tiger in Haiti

June 28 – July 24, 2016

Mandell Weiss Forum

By Jeff Augustin
Directed by Joshua Kahan Brody

Co-production with Berkeley Repertory Theatre


It’s the final night of Kanaval in Haiti, and a group of abandoned children spend it trading fantastic folktales until the line between reality and fiction blurs. At daybreak, the oldest plans to leave for a new life but discovers the story of his future and past are in the hands of someone else. Set in a world that is utterly real and remarkably imaginative, this unforgettable new play from Jeff Augustin weaves Haitian lore into a contemporary narrative of survival and betrayal.

Jeff Augustin is an award-winning playwright whose work has been produced at the Humana Festival of New American Plays, Berkeley Repertory Theatre and others. A 2015 Princess Grace Award winner, Joshua Kahan Brody is co-founder of the San Diego site-based theater group THE TRIP. Both UC San Diego M.F.A. graduates, the two presented The Last Tiger in Haiti in last year’s DNA New Work Series.

Junk: Or the Golden Age of Debt

World-Premiere Play

JUNK: The Golden Age of Debt

July 26 – August 21, 2016

Mandell Weiss Theatre

By Ayad Akhtar
Directed by Doug Hughes


The Deal. The Board Room. The Takeover. This is the battleground where titanic egos collide, where modern day kings are made and unmade. It's a world where debt is an asset and assets are excuses for more debt, a world where finance runs the show. How did we get here? How did the world we once knew change?

Pulitzer Prize-winning author Ayad Akhtar takes us back to the hotbed of the ‘80s and offers us an origin story for the world that finance has given us, a sexy and epic thriller about an upstart genius hell-bent on changing all the rules.

Ayad Akhtar wrote the Playhouse’s world-premiere production of The Who & The What. He is the author of the novel American Dervish, and the play Disgraced which won the 2013 Pulitzer Prize for Drama.

Tiger Style!

Potiker Theatre

By Mike Lew
Directed by Jaime Castañeda


Star students and squabbling siblings Albert and Jennifer Chen used to represent the pinnacle of adolescent achievement. But when it comes to adulthood, they’re epic failures. Albert’s just been passed up for promotion and Jennifer's been dumped by her loser boyfriend. So they do what any reasonable egghead brother and sister would do and go on an Asian Freedom Tour! Travelling from California to China, Tiger Style! embraces the inner slacker and the outer tiger parent in all of us.

La Jolla native Mike Lew’s plays include Bike America, microcrisis, Stockton and People’s Park. He is also co-director of the Ma-Yi Writers’ Lab, the largest collective of Asian-American playwrights in the country. Playhouse Associate Artistic Director Jaime Castañeda directs, following his unforgettable Playhouse debut with Guards at the Taj.
