"A wholly engrossing production . . . [Director M. Bevin] O'Gara elicits some of the finest ensemble acting seen on any Boston stage this year." – The Boston Globe


"DO NOT MISS TRIBES!" – Joyce's Choices

"Starting with the playwright's sensationally-crafted script, to the strong actors to the creative stagecraft, this a provocative and excellent production of intimacy and isolation. Tribes is a play that speaks to us in visceral and thoughtful ways." – Berkshire Fine Arts

"It not only opens the season but also our eyes, our ears, and ultimately our souls, with an impact that cries out to be seen, heard and felt to be believed; in its beauty and truth, it is unmatchable, unforgettable, unmissable." – South Shore Critic
