Tickets are now on sale for the upcoming off-Broadway production of Nina Raine’s Tribes, starring Mare Winningham and Jeff Perry. Directed by David Cromer, previews begin February 16 at the Barrow Street Theatre, with opening night set for March 4.
The play follows Billy, a deaf man raised inside the fiercely idiosyncratic and unrepentantly politically incorrect cocoon of his home of his parents' house. He has adapted brilliantly to his hearing family’s unconventional ways, but they’ve never bothered to return the favor. It’s not until he meets Sylvia, a young woman on the brink of deafness, that he finally understands what it means to be understood.
The cast of Tribes also includes Will Brill (Our Town), Russell Harvard (There Will Be Blood), Susan Pourfar (In the Wake) and Gayle Rankin (The Illusion).
