Tiger Style! in American Sign Language

BY MIKE LEW | DIRECTED BY AIMEE CHOU

FREE (but donations gratefully accepted)

RECOMMENDED AGE FOR VIEWING IS 13+

The Huntington’s hit 2016 production of Mike Lew’s Tiger Style! was recently recorded as an audio play, and is now brought to you as a virtual reading in American Sign Language

Directed by Aimee Chou and featuring a cast of artists who identify as Deaf, Tiger Style! is performed entirely in American Sign Language with subtitles in English.

Squabbling siblings Albert and Jennifer Chen reached the pinnacle of academic achievement. But as adults, they’re epic failures: he’s just been passed up for promotion and she’s been dumped by her loser boyfriend. So, naturally, they confront their parents and launch an Asian Freedom Tour! From California to China, this hilarious comedy examines race, parenting, and success with wit and sharp humor.
