Tribes AUTHOR Nina Raine mobi ✓ Paperback Read ½ Nina Raine ☆ In Tribes Billy who is deaf is the only one who actually listens in his idiosyncratic fiercely argumentative bohemian family But when he meets Sylvia who is going deaf he decides he finally wants to be heard With excoriating dialogue and shar Ting dialogue and sharp compassionate insights Nina Raine crafts a penetrating play about belonging family and the limitations of communicationNominated for both the Olivier and Evening Standard Awards for Best Play Trib I think I'd prefer to give this 35 stars but having a hard time doing thatDialogue is great Characters seem fully fleshed out SPOILERSMy biggest problem with the play is the believablity of some of the events and the overdone foreshadowingFor example Billy's job seems a bit far fetch then you realize that he gets fired because he was faking it It happens uickly in the course of events and the job his being able to fake it so easily and it was a high stakes job just didn't ring true maybe because I wasn't given enough time to believe itAlso there is some obvious foreshadowing by Ruth that Billy's brother will love his new girl friend Sylvia Whether or not he lovers her is to be determined he might hate her the cliche that love and hate are close emotions is never spoken But he kisses her and that is partial cause for the break up of Billy and Sylvia Yes we saw it coming Did I believe it MEH How can I see something coming and still not believe it? Good uestionI'm sure it was well staged by actors who could make the audience believe it I have a lot of faith in actors and their ability to make an audience love a mediocre script This is than a mediocre script and story but just a few challenges for me

Tribes AUTHOR Nina RaiEs premiered at the Royal Court Theatre in London in 2011 Under the direction of David Cromer the comic drama is currently receiving its North American premiere in New York City at Barrow Street Theatre through June 3 20 Rating a book is the wrong way to go about this play I should have seen the performance This is a brilliant play The core of the book is the idea of hearing and being heard and its myriad connotations in a family that has a deaf child There are so many layers here I cannot even begin to unravel I think I had an advantage in reading this play I could stop to admire the layers On stage it would have just rushed me by I haven't read too much drama since college and now I am tempted to change that
