Videos: Your first look at the DCPA's 'Tribes'

The video above is close-captioned. Please hit the “CC” YouTube option to read them.

Here is your first look at the Denver Center for the Performing Arts Theatre Company’s new production of Tribes, by Nina Raine. It is the story of a fiercely intelligent and proudly politically incorrect British family with a deaf son they have not raised as deaf. Meeting Sylvia causes Billy to question what it means to be understood. Dissecting the possibilities of belonging, family and language, Tribes is as witty as it is heartrending. Directed by Stephen Weitz. Playing Oct. 9-Nov. 15, 2015, in the Ricketson Theatre.Ticket information here and below.  Video by David Lenk for the DCPA NewsCenter.

A message from Tribes Director Stephen Weitz:
