Nina Raine's Tribes follows Billy, a deaf man raised inside the defiantly idiosyncratic and politically incorrect cocoon of his parents' house. He's adapted brilliantly to his hearing family's unconventional ways, but they've never returned the favor, leaving Billy isolated and alone -- and without the use of sign language. It's not until he meets Sylvia, a young woman on the brink of deafness herself, that he finally understands what it feels like to be understood. The deaf community becomes his new "tribe," leading to tensions with his family. The play premiered at London's Royal Court Theatre in 2010 with a sold-out run, which garnered rave reviews and numerous honors, and then made another critically acclaimed appearance off-Broadway, where it won the 2012 Drama Desk Award for Outstanding Play.

The show was too slow for my taste. I left at intermission, as did some other people. Everyone's shoes were making weird noises on the stage. I'm pretty sure they did not have treaded shows during that time period. I just was expecting a higher quality show from the Steppenwolf. The older lady and Goddy Proctor were the only believable actors in the show. I would suggest spending your money to see something else.
"The Crucible was an act of desperation...when I began to think of writing about the hunt for Reds in America, I was motivated in some great part by the paralysis that had set it... Nobody but a fanatic, it seemed, could really say all that he believed." -Arthur Miller
The Chicago Public Library has chosen The Crucible as the Fall 2007 selection for the One Book, One Chicago citywide book club.
