Tribes by Nina Raine
Coming August 10-20

City Park Players is pleased to present Tribes, a contemporary drama by the talented playwright Nina Raines and directed by Diane Falcone. 

Tribes opens on Thursday, August 10 at the Hearn Stage in Downtown Alexandria.  This edgy drama features local actors Dr. Bernard Gallagher (Christopher), Carey Thompson (Beth), Peter Falcone, Jr. (Daniel), Ashley Treib (Ruth), Mark Weinzettle (Billy), and Lexie Leger (Sylvia).

Tribes focuses on a comically dysfunctional family, made up of the parents Beth and Christopher and three grown children living at home, Daniel, Ruth and Billy, the last of whom is deaf, raised to read lips and speak but without knowledge of sign language.

When Billy meets Sylvia, a hearing woman born to deaf parents who is now slowly going deaf herself, his interaction with her (including her teaching him sign language) reveals some of the languages, beliefs, and hierarchies of the family and the “extended family” of the deaf community.

Tribes performances continue August 10-20 - Thursdays-Saturdays at 7:30pm; Sundays at 2:30pm at the Hearn Stage in Downtown Alexandria.

Tickets are on sale now at  www.cpptheatre.com and will be available 30 minutes before each performance in the lobby of the theatre.

Agatha Christie's Witness for the Prosecution is a thrilling murder/mystery with mild adult themes.  Leonard Vole stands accused of murdering a rich widow. The stakes are high with shocking witness testimony, impassioned outbursts from the dock and a young man’s fight to escape the hangman’s noose. Generally regarded as one of Christie’s most accomplished plays, this suspenseful thriller keeps audiences guessing until the very end.

Supported by a grant from the Louisiana Division of the Arts, Office of Cultural Development, Department of Culture, Recreation, and Tourism, in cooperation with the Louisiana State Arts Council, and as administered by the Arts Council of Central Louisiana.  Funding has also been provided by the National Endowment for the Arts, Art Works.
