In Tribes, Billy, who is deaf, is the only one who actually listens in his idiosyncratic, fiercely argumentative bohemian family. But when he meets Sylvia, who is going deaf, he decides he finally wants to be heard. With excoriating dialogue and sharp, compassionate insights, Nina Raine crafts a penetrating play about belonging, family and the limitations of communication.Nominated for both the Olivier and Evening Standard Awards for Best Play, Tribes premiered at the Royal Court Theatre in London in 2011.Starring Steve Lawson, Samantha Barrass, Tim Seed, Rachel Palmer, Louis Emmitt-Stern and Erica McGrail Barabich. Directed and Produced by Daniel Strain-Webber.
