Meet Billy: he was born deaf, but has grown up lip-reading in the midst of his fiercely intelligent and unconventional family. Meet Sylvia: she was born to deaf parents and is gradually losing her own hearing. As Sylvia teaches Billy sign language, their worlds begin to align just as Billy’s family grapple with his new-found independence.
A runaway hit in London and off-Broadway, TRIBES delves into our universal desire to belong and to be heard with startling humour and biting accuracy.
“Raine’s tribal instinct breaks down the language barriers. It’s the best-written, bestplotted, deepest, most daring—and funniest—new play in recent years.”
The Wall Street Journal
“Tribes forces us to hear with our eyes as well.”
The New York Times
