A Drama Desk award-winning play about the importance of community is looking for actors for a West Coast production this fall.

“Tribes,” written by Nina Raine, is about Billy, the only deaf child in a hearing family who is introduced to the deaf community by Sylvia, a young woman on the brink of losing her hearing. The Anaheim, California production is currently seeking male and female talent aged 20–30 to play several principal roles, including Billy and Sylvia. The actor playing Billy should be a deaf actor with fluency in American Sign Language. There are also two supporting roles available for a male actor and a female actor, both ages 50–70 to play Billy’s mother and father, respectively.

There is an open casting call on July 5 and July 6 in Anaheim, California. Rehearsals begin Aug. 8 and the show runs Sept. 30–Oct. 22 at Chance Theater. Pay is $600 for the total production run of 16 performances.
