Theatre, Stage & Film

Director Oonagh Murphy makes her debut at the Gate Theatre with her interpretation of Nina Raine’s Tribes, which premiered at the Royal Court Theatre, London, in 2010.

Nina got the idea for Tribes from a documentary about a deaf couple expecting a child, who hoped their child would also be deaf. A strange sentiment, Nina thought, until she started to unravel exactly why these expectant parents felt the way they did.

She surmised that families are really tribes, with their own rituals and processes unique to them. In some families, you go on holiday and have to bring a novelty magnet home. In others, the family would balk at you bringing anything back at all.

Nina started thinking about tribes, and the result was this thoughtful play, which has garnered outstanding reviews.

Focusing on a funny Jewish British family, with one deaf child, the play tells stories about love, language, steadfast beliefs and hierarchies.

Tribes is unaffected, sweet, honest and enlightening - a play that will make you look at your own families and communities in a new light. Don’t miss this at the Gate Theatre. It is an absolute must-see.
