City Park Players presents "Tribes" by Nina Raine August 10-20 at Hearn Stage in downtown Alexandria, LA. "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.
