CTG Show Guide for Parents
Make sure you get yourself tickets for this profoundly moving show!” – Los Angeles Magazine
Billy is in love. For the first time in his entire life as a deaf person he has found Sylvia, someone who listens to him.
As they begin their romance in a dance of conversations — both silent and spoken — one question becomes deafening: why did Billy and his family, his tribe, never learn sign language?
“A smart, lively and beautifully acted new play that asks us to hear how we hear, in silence as well as in speech.” - The New York Times
“I was trying to remember her face. In the end, it was like I wore it out…like I photocopied it too many times. - Billy in Tribes by Nina Raine
Tribes made its world premiere at the Royal Court Theatre in London where it was nominated for the Olivier Award for Best Play in 2010. In this critically-celebrated production direct from the Barrow Street Theatre off-Broadway, Obie Award-winner David Cromer (Our Town) masterfully orchestrates an intricately woven cast of characters in a fascinating interplay of sound and communication, perception and true understanding.
