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
Reviews & Ratings
The dingy back alley of a sleepy Vermont coffeehouse is home to trash bins, weathered patio furniture, and two affable slackers. KJ and Jasper fill their languid days with Bukowski references, low-key jam sessions, and ‘shroom-spiked tea. When a new employee—the smart but awkward teen Evan—attempts to evict them from their makeshift perch, KJ and Jasper recruit him as their unlikely summer protégé. Praised by The Village Voice as “an eloquent meditation on creativity and time’s passage,” this drama is a subtle ode to the truth and compassion hidden in unexpected people and places. From the critically acclaimed writer of Circle Mirror Transformation.
