Williams plays the title character, the tiger, in a drama that is described as a "savagely funny and deeply affecting play." According to press notes, "A tiger haunts the streets of present-day Baghdad seeking the meaning of life." The tiger "witnesses the puzzling absurdities of war," encountering "Americans and Iraqis who are searching for friendship, redemption and a toilet seat made of gold."
Here, Williams sits down with TIME editor Belinda Luscombe to answer ten questions—he talks about his role in the show, the Iraq war and being a professional comedian.
