Tribes is the story of Billy, a young man who lives with an intellectual, chaotic, and sharp-tongued family. Arguments and insults regularly fly around the dinner table, all while Billy silently watches the scene unfold—he has been deaf since birth. He has managed to adapt to his family's unconventional ways, but they've never really returned the favor. His world is turned upside down when he meets Sylvia, a young woman on the cusp of deafness herself. Told with unfiltered wit at a roaring pace, Tribes is the hysterical and touching story about the struggle for self-identity and what it truly means to be understood. Winner of the Drama Desk Award for Outstanding Play, Tribes is a story of love, family and finding one’s voice. “You’ll find yourself suspended on a swaying bridge between two worlds.” —The New York Times.
