Solar Bear theatre company is set to go on tour in Scotland this autumn, with the play Tribes, which is about a young man who is deaf and born into a hearing family where sign language has never been used.

Raising awareness of issues facing the deaf and hearing communities, Tribes made a huge impact when it was first performed at the Royal Court Theatre in London in 2011.

Alex Nowak, a talented young deaf actor, will be playing the role of Billy. Based in London, he has mainly worked in film and this will be his first stage production.

It is recommended for audiences over the age of 14 due to strong language, and the production is accessible to deaf and hearing audiences, with captions. There will also be BSL Interpreted performances at Paisley Arts Centre and Assembly Roxy.
