Meet the current cast of the acclaimed Off-Broadway hit Tribes written by Nina Raine
and directed by multiple Lortel and Obie Award-winner David Cromer
. The cast features Will Brill
as Daniel, Susannah Flood
as Sylvia, Russell Harvard
as Billy, Lee Roy Rogers as Beth , Jeff Still as Christopher and DIna Thomas as Ruth. Tribes opened on March 4, 2012 to rave reviews and is currently in performance at The Barrow Street Theatre(27 Barrow Street). Tickets are on sale through January 6, 2013.
In Tribes, Billy was born deaf into a hearing family, and raised inside the fiercely idiosyncratic and unrepentantly politically incorrect cocoon of his parents’ house. 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.
The most nominated new play of the season, Tribes garnered 20 awards nominations and was declared “Best Play” by New York Drama Desk, “Best Foreign Play” by the New York Drama Critics Circle and “Best New Play” by the Off-Broadway Alliance. For his New York debut, Russell Harvard received the 2012 Theatre World Award.
