A perfect play - a deft, sensitive, and unusual treatment of an important issue, a top notch cast, a great set, music and lighting. What more could one want. Ideas and issues to chew on, mull, and discuss for a long time to come. Don't miss it.

Tribes started as am interesting and provocative play.. Great acting but the second act disintegrated into confusion. It was weak and did not delve into the characters in any meaningful way. It was almost enough to have a play lasting a bit over...continued

Quotes & Highlights

“O’Gara elicits some of the finest ensemble acting seen on any Boston stage this year …_ Tribes_ is largely devoid of manipulative button-pushing. What you get instead are honest human moments, as Raine explores that complicated familial intersection where complacency, loyalty, thoughtlessness, good intentions, and misunderstandings collide.” -Boston Globe
“The excellent ensemble is having a good time with these neurotics and the family kind of grows on you. The cast is obviously listening to each other even while they’re playing characters who don’t.” -WBUR
