Tribes by Nina Raine

Coming August 10-20

Hearn Stage at the Kress Theatre
Thursday-Saturday at 7:30pm
Sunday matinee at 2:30pm
Tribes focuses on a comically dysfunctional Jewish 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.

Ticket Pricing:
Thursday : $5   .   General : $15  .   Senior (>60) & Military : $12  .   Students : $7

Tickets are on sale now at and will be available 30 minutes before each performance in the lobby of the theatre. For reservations and more, please email:  or call 318-484-4478.
