Tacoma Arts Live presents Tribes: A Play by Nina Raine @ Theatre on the Square
Nov 4 @ 7:30 pm

We inherit our first tribe, the family. Our tribe speaks their own language, both literally and emotionally. Billy was born deaf into a hearing family, but raised to fit into the hearing world. Her parents and siblings fiercely cling to their funny, quirky, and politically incorrect world-views, but, Billy has adapted brilliantly to her family’s unconventional ways. And yet they’ve never bothered to return the favor. It’s not until she meets Sylvia, a young woman on the brink of deafness, that she finally understands what it means to be understood, to be seen, to be honored. Comic twists mix with charged emotions in a play that universally speaks to all of us. Each show will be ASL interpreted. For complete performance information, visit website.
