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...)
