Time of Wolves and Tigers was originally produced alongside 'The Last of the Last of the Mohicans' and 'Nothing Personal' (both listed separately) under the umbrella title, 'Suburb of Babylon'.
Jumbo, an alcoholic civil servant, returns home half-drunk. His wife has left him and Jumbo is afraid of the empty house. Seeking reassurance he starts phoning friends, only to discover that he is in trouble at work. Feeling isolated, he manages to contact his wife and persuades her to return home, promising to mend his ways. But Jumbo knows he can never change and the play ends with him trying to come to grips with his fear of his empty house and life.
The play also features the recorded voice of a Radio Newscaster.
