Event description

Description

Face Off Theatre Company continues their dynamic third season with the widely acclaimed production of The Brother’s Size!

In the Louisiana bayou, big brother Ogun Size is hardworking and steady. Younger brother, Oshoosi, is just out of prison and aimless. 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 15 years old.
