Marquette, MI – (Great Lakes Radio News) – The Forest Roberts Theatre at Northern Michigan University is presenting “Tribes” by Nina Raine in the Panowski Black Box Theatre February 10th-14th, and 17th-21, 2015.
Showtimes are Tuesday through Saturday at 7:30pm and 1:00pm on Saturdays.
Cast members John Scheibe and Amanda Woods joined the SUNNY Morning Show with Walt & Mike to discuss the show.
Scheibe says the play follows his character, Billy, a deaf man raised inside the fiercely politically incorrect cocoon of his parent’s house.
He has adapted to his hearing family’s unconventional ways, but they’ve never bothered to return the favor.
It’s not until he meets Sylvia, a young woman on the brink of deafness, played by Woods, that he finally understands what it means to be understood.
