Photo Flash: First Look at Berkeley Rep's TRIBES

Berkeley Repertory Theatre's TRIBES runs through Sunday, May 18, 2014. The the critically acclaimed family drama by Nina Raine is directed by Jonathan Moscone. Scroll down for a first look at the cast in action!

The play follows Billy, a young man who was born deaf into a loquacious and highly opinionated academic family who raised him to lip-read and integrate into the hearing world. When he meets Sylvia - raised by deaf parents and going deaf herself - Billy decides it's time to speak on his own terms and be heard.

Tribes had its world premiere in 2010 at the Royal Court Theatre and its North American premiere off Broadway at theBarrow Street Theatre in 2012, where it won the 2012 Drama Desk Award for Outstanding Play. It has since played throughout the country, sweeping critics and audiences off their feet.
