Capital Stage - Tribes (Courtesy Listing)

There is a new play called, TRIBES that is performed at the Capital Stage Theater located at 2215 J Street, Sacramento Ca. 95816
The Wall Street Journal Calls TRIBES " the best-written, best-plotted, deepest, most daring - and funniest - new play in recent years."  Winner of the 2012 Drama Desk Award for Outstanding Play, TRIBES has received critical acclaim in both the US and UK.  Synopsis of the play:  Billy was born deaf into a hearing family. He was raised inside its fiercely idiosyncratic and politically incorrect cocoon.  He has adapted brilliantly to his 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.  With sharp dialogue and compassionate insights, Nina Raine ( the playwright) crafts a penetrating play about belonging, family, and the limitations of communication.
