Lean Ensemble Presents Nina Raine’s critically-acclaimed Tribes

It’s tricky enough navigating the fast-paced wit and verbal gymnastics of a noisy family’s repartee but for Billy, the only deaf member of his talkative clan, lipreading the nuances is particularly challenging. What’s more no one in his family including Billy knows sign language—a decision his parents made, hoping he wouldn’t feel disadvantaged in a hearing world. Enter Sylvia, Billy’s new girlfriend who much to the family’s dismay, escorts Billy into a new tribe, that of the deaf community. There he learns to sign—an act that turns all their assumptions about how we communicate topsy turvy.
