Acclaimed Play Tribes by Nina Raine will be Interpreted

tribesMany upcoming performances of Tribes by Nina Raine will be ASL interpreted. The play is about Billy, who was born deaf into a garrulous academic family who raised him to lip read and integrate into the hearing world. When he meets Sylvia—who’s going deaf herself—Billy decides it’s time to speak on his own terms, sending shock waves through the family. Playing out in sign language, argument, music, and mesmerizing silence, this sophisticated drama examines family, belonging, and the limitations of language. A moving and surprising play from a rising star of the British theatre, presented in cooperation with Gallaudet University.

The play has received positive reviews, including:

“The best-written, best-plotted, deepest, most daring—and funniest—new play in recent years.” —The Wall Street Journal
