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.

Director Anna D. Shapiro notes, “Three Sisters is a play about a certain kind of paralysis. It is about all of the things we construct in the future that keep us immobilized in the day. There are unhappy marriages, unrequited love, duels and really nasty in-laws. And everybody’s trying to get somewhere else. And it’s funny. Funny in the way that serious human folly can be funny.”
The parking structure for the theater is rather modest. Please allow ample time for parking.
