SpeakEasy Stage Company describes TRIBES as: Born deaf into a garrulous academic family, Billy was pushed to assimilate into the hearing world as best he could by reading lips and staying out of the way. But when a young woman introduces him to the Deaf community, Billy decides it is time his family learns to communicate with him on his terms.
Audition for the following characters:
Billy (Male 20-30): Deaf since birth. Brought up oral. Wears hearing aids. He meets Sylvia who teaches him to sign, opening him up to a world he never knew before. Sheltered. Considerate. A gentle spirit.
Sylvia (Female 25-35): Born with hearing but now rapidly going deaf. While she hasn't wanted to let someone in, she falls for Billy. While Billy might see her as a vibrant new light in his life the rest of the family sees her as "nice and funny". Experience with ASL and the piano a PLUS.
