WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Tarell Alvin McCraney, one of America's most acclaimed young writers and the winner of the inaugural New York Times Outstanding Playwright Award, returns to The Public with a trilogy of modern-day stories of kinship, love, heartache and coming-of-age centered around an extended family and community in the Bayou. McCraney's stories traverse the gritty and lyrical, urban and mythic. Be among the first to hear the words of one of the most startling new voices of the 21st century, who is thrilling audiences around the globe by pushing the boundaries of language, form, and sexuality in provocative, musical and poetic ways. This trilogy, offered over two performances, can be viewed independently, or in either order, but have a special resonance when experienced together. Part 1: In the Red and Brown Water Directed by Tina Landau How far will Oya go to make a mark in the world? Fast, beautiful Oya is a young runner with enormous promise, forced to choose between her ailing mother and her own dreams. This intoxicating story charts a young girl's thrust into womanhood and her subsequent fall into the murky waters of life. Part 2: The Brothers Size and Marcus; or the Secret of Sweet Directed by Robert O'Hara The Brothers Size Re-conceived as part of the trilogy since it premiered as part of The Public's 2007-2008 season, this taut, rhythmic and playful drama follows two brothers as they walk the line between law and liberty, locked in a fierce tug-of-war for their own souls and a test of their fraternal bond. Marcus; or the Secret of Sweet A beautiful and touching tale of a young man's awakening to his tenuous connections with his history, his friends, his sexuality, and himself.
