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.
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
