Something Theatrical

WMU company stages Tribes
University Theatre presents Tribes.

Belonging, community and family are the themes at the heart of Tribes, to be staged by University Theatre March 13-22 at Western Michigan University’s Williams Theatre.

The play focuses on Billy, the only deaf member of a loving but dysfunctional family. He learns how isolated he has been from other deaf people when he meets Sylvia, a young woman who has been raised as the only hearing member of a deaf family. Because of the mature content, Tribes is recommended for audiences 13 and older.

Show times are 7:30 p.m. March 13,14, 19, 20 and 21 and 2 p.m. March 22. Tickets are $18-$20 and available online at
