Introducing Jack Volpe as Billy

“How can you feel a feeling unless you have the word for it?”

The only deaf member of an eccentric, intellectual family, Billy longs to be heard. When a romance with a woman who teaches him sign language opens him up to a new world of self-expression, Billy discovers that instead of trying to fit into his family’s world, he can break out and find his own. Quick-witted, funny and moving Tribes is a powerful look at language, love, and what it truly means to be understood.

“Best-written, best-plotted, deepest, most daring – and funniest – new play in recent years”
-The Wall Street Journal

“Extraordinary… scintillating”
-The New Yorker

“A smart, lively…play that asks us to hear how we hear, in silence as well as in speech.”
-NY Times.

“There’s so much going on in…TRIBES… intellect and sentiment, love and cruelty, witty zingers and biting put-downs. But in Nina Raine’s dazzling play, too much is a good thing.”
– NY Post

“TRIBES made me excited about … theatre again; I haven’t been this knocked out by a play in a long time.”
– NYTheatre.com
