Event description

Description

Am I my brother's keeper? After a homecoming in the bayous of Louisiana, the size brothers, Ogun (hard working & steady) and Oshoosi (just out of prison & aimless), try to start to fresh. Elegba, Oshoosi's old prison-mate, is a mysterious complication. A simple circle defines a world that begins in ritual and evolves into a tough and tender drama of what it means to brother and be a brother. Flights of poetry, music, dance and West African mythology combine in a contemporary tale that explores the tenuousness of freedom and the need to belong somewhere, to something, to someone.

"The greatest piece of writing by an American playwright under 30 in a generation or more." —Chicago Tribune. "With his original and singular voice, McCraney crafts an intense story about the unbreakable bond between brothers, a bond that is equal parts love and despair." —Miami Herald. "McCraney explores [the dramatic dilemmas] with rare urgency and emotional complexity, and a creative expansiveness that pushes THE BROTHERS SIZE beyond the ordinary." —Seattle Times.

*Warning: This production contains explicit language, adult themes, and sexual content. Not recommended for youth under 13 years old.
