Tribes at the Salt Lake Acting Company

by dav.d

The newest play to open at the Salt Lake Acting Company opens this week! Tribes was written by Nina Raine and it explores the relationship Billy, born deaf, with his family. Billy had adapted brilliantly to his family’s unconventional ways but they never returned the favor. He meets Sylvia who is on the brink of going deaf and he finally understands what it means to be understood.

The set design was amazing for this play. The set is a London flat and the set designers must have had a blast. So many details and it feels like people could actually live on set. There is a pretty ingenious method to “translate the sign language that is spoken in the show.
