“Tribes,” an intelligent, profane play about the need to belong and the unwritten rules that are the price of it, is set in the world of the hearing-impaired. It's a rare wonder, tapping equally into your brain and your heart.
The SNAP Productions show, smartly directed by Michal Simpson, drew a sparse crowd to a snowy Thursday preview, but that's likely to change once word gets out about Noah Diaz's stellar performance in the lead role. “Tribes” boasts an entire cast of strong actors delivering British playwright Nina Raine's crackling dialogue, none better than Diaz.
