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. Then he meets Sylvia, a young woman on the brink of deafness herself, and he finally learns what it feels like to be understood. The 2012 Pulitzer Prize-winner Water By the Spoonful is a haunting and eloquent play about resilience, redemption, and families of both blood and choice. And in Cock, John's boyfriend is ready to forgive, forget and get back together -- but John thinks he may have just met the woman of his dreams. What ensues is the definition of a love triangle in this investigation of attraction, ambivalence, and commitment. Learn More

BABY UNIVERSE was very entertaining and quite poignant. The range of emotions the puppeteers can call forth from puppets is astonishing. I really felt this play. Certainly, I thought about its themes, but the real place this play gets you is in the heart. Loved it and recommend it highly.
