Tribe Performance in ISL


With excoriating dialogue and sharp, compassionate insights, Nina Raine crafts a penetrating, deeply moving and shockingly funny play.

The Irish Premiere of this award-winning play relocates the action from leafy suburban Hampstead to South County Dublin where Billy, born deaf into a hearing family, struggles to define who he is within his highly intellectual, yet emotionally possessive, clan.

Oonagh Murphy, one of Ireland’s brightest directing talents makes her directorial debut at the Gate with this play about belonging, family and the limitations of communication.

Presented as part of the Dublin Theatre Festival.

There will be an Irish Sign Language interpreted performance on Friday the 13th of October. The sign language interpreter is Caroline O’Leary. Seats with ideal visibility of the Irish Sign Language interpreter are reserved for audience members availing of this service, so please inform Box Office when booking for the Irish Sign Language interpreted performance.
