What does it really mean to hear and to listen? Verbal jabs, sign language and subtitles collide in the Pittsburgh premiere of Nina Raine’s Tribes, a provocative play about what it really means to be heard, by one of London’s hottest playwrights.  While this drama deals with a serious topic, it also provides a lot of one-liners and laughs partly due to the eccentric and amusing family at its center. Winner of the 2012 Drama Desk Award winner for Outstanding Play and a sold-out hit in New York and London, Tribes stars Tad Cooley and is directed by City Theatre’s former associate artistic director, Stuart Carden.
