Sweet, silent Billy (Thomas Pang) feels like an outsider in his own family. Billy, you see, happens to be deaf. Dad (Adrian Pang) - first class academic, world class ass; Mum (Sue Tordoff) - mystery novelist, clueless about the mystery of her own family; Sis (Frances Lee): up-and-coming opera singer in a downtown pub; and Big Brother (Gavin Yap) - speech expert, hears voices in his head…your typical dysfunctional, eccentric tribe of bohemian weirdos.

When Billy falls in love with a real 'outsider', Sylvia (Ethel Yap), his world is turned inside out, and he finally wants to be heard. And what he has to say will ear-shatteringly and heart-breakingly prove that actions really do speak louder than words…

A uniquely humorous and profoundly moving look at the complexities of communicating with the ones you love, Tribeswon the 2012 Drama Desk Award for Outstanding Play.
