BWW Review: Mad Cow's TRIBES is Beautiful Examination of Love, Family, CommunicationBWW Review: Mad Cow's TRIBES is Beautiful Examination of Love, Family, Communication
by Matt Tamanini - Aug 26, 2015

Since I left the Mad Cow Theatre after seeing the Sunday matinee of their newest show, TRIBES by Nina Raine, I haven't been able to stop thinking about the implications stirred up by the highly dysfunctional family at the center of this rich, thickly plotted drama. I have become slightly weary of new plays trading on the 'highly dysfunctional family' trope in recent years, as most are flawed attempts to capitalize on the success of AUGUST: OSAGE COUNTY, but the insight with which Raine draws her characters, and the difficulties that they face, is uniquely specific, and all together powerful. The plot of this beautifully realized production analyzes the nature of family, of belonging, and the differences between communicating and connecting. (more...)

BWW Reviews: TRIBES Evokes Every EmotionBWW Reviews: TRIBES Evokes Every Emotion
by Marietta Lunceford - Jun 8, 2015

This week I have seen a rock musical, a slapstick comedy and now, a British play that I am not sure I have the words to tell you about. I laughed, I was swept away by romance, I raged at betrayal, and was reminded of my own family. TRIBES is a must see! (more...)

BWW Reviews:  Dia-TRIBES at CircuitBWW Reviews: Dia-TRIBES at Circuit
by Joseph Baker - Apr 21, 2015

David Morgan's detailed set design for Circuit Playhouse's production of Nina Raine's TRIBES 'speaks volumes' (no pun intended) for the noisy, ego-driven family the audience is about to meet: Piano, stage left; 'intellectual' clutter scattered about; books everywhere; and - oh, yes - a liquor bottle on the table. The members almost immediately begin to descend on stage, chattering away with the kind of overlapping, hyper-intense dialogue that would make the late Robert Altman smile and put fingers in both of his ears. Nothing seems in harmony hear -- everything is a cacophonous, confused kind of roar. At the center, as a kind of eye to this verbal hurricane, is 'Billy,' sweetly casting his gaze from one pair of lips to another, as that is the only way he can absorb the conversations that are colliding about him.
