Following the success last year of Tarell Alvin McCraney's In the Red and Brown Water, Pillsbury House Theatre and The Mount Curve Company are coming back to the Dowling Studio with the second play of McCraney's acclaimed trilogy, The Brothers Size. This exuberantly theatrical drama from one of the country's most exciting new voices weaves together brothers, the bayou, and African mythology to create a stylized story of love and loss.
When Oshoosi Size (Namir Smallwood) comes home from prison, he hopes to resume his happily aimless life, but his older brother Ogun (James Williams), a hard-working mechanic, cannot let Oshoosi forget his mistakes. Does the love of family hold you back or can it help you escape fate? The Brothers Size dramatizes the ties that bind all of us together and the urges of the human heart that can rip everything apart.
