The Water Tribe

VS. Theatre Company
5453 West Pico Boulevard Los Angeles

Claudia is young, parentless, minimally employed, and almost without family or friends but she remains upbeat about her future and confident in her quest to form a personal tribe for herself and her boyfriend Johnny. But Johnny has problems of his own. He has launched into adulthood but still struggles to cut the cord from his concerned mother while searching for a connection to his long-absent father. As the few people Claudia has in her life begin to fall away and the problems in her relationship are laid bare, she teeters on the brink of catastrophe in this searing, darkly funny tragicomedy about the critical importance of community, identity, and home.

Los Angeles Times - Somewhat Recommended

"...The actors, under the workmanlike direction of Tricia Small, do their best to flesh out Cummings’ cursory characters, with mixed results. The point of the play, one supposes, is to explore alienation and the desperate need of the “feral” Claudia to find a “tribe” of friends who will function as her family. Reiling is quite good, and Prichard is a gifted performer who almost rises above her material. Unrelenting ditziness is a hard act to sell, and this play ultimately exhausts even her considerable resources."

"...If it’s not already clear, The Water Tribe may not be everyone’s cup of tea, perhaps no wonder given that even a little of Claudia can go a long long way. Still, for those willing to put up with a whole lot of crazy, The Water Tribe makes for one wild ride."

Stage Raw - Somewhat Recommended

"...Overall, Cummings’s play lacks focus. The need to belong is a universal feeling, and exploring that concept from the perspective of a character like Claudia adds nuance to the idea. However, as it is, her personality has the ability to turn the audience off from her antics, making her story far too little compelling to want to follow."
