Tribes at Barrington Stage Company


"Eli Pauley as Sylvia is the essence of this production. Through her we feel the pain of loss as she finds herself leaving the hearing world to become trapped by a wall of silence." —Bob Goepfert, WAMC Public Radio

"As she journeys into silence, and as music, laughter, and weeping all become just a roaring rush of sound, Eli Pauley as Sylvia, brings tears of empathy for her encroaching loss." —Barbara Stroup, In the Spotlight

"One of the most touching moments in the play is when Sylvia tells Billy she has lost the ability to hear her voice... Not until the scene that brings Sylvia into the house does the play find it's focus..." —Macey Levin, Berkshire Onstage and Screen

"The cast is terrific, and none more so than... Eli Pauley as Sylvia." —Chris Rohmann,

"Exquisitely acted..." —Steve Barnes, Albany Times Union

"Eli Pauley plays Sylvia with an energy that fights the anger in Billy's family and helps to keep her character strong and centered. She and Castille play well together and she uses an aggressiveness to overcome some of the play's most difficult situations. I really liked her work in this play." —J. Peter Bergman, The Berkshire Edge
