WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Epic in scope yet intimate and genuine, Tarell Alvin McCraney's The Brother/Sister Plays masterfully weaves together three stunning tales of family and legacy. On the banks of a steamy bayou, the tiny, fictional community of San Pere, Louisiana, springs to life with daring modern-day stories of love, sexuality, kinship, and coming-of-age. Steeped in southern rhythms, inspired by Afro-Caribbean culture, and seamed shut with urban music and dance, The Brother/Sister Plays provides a lyrical and mythic look at the search for identity in a contemporary world. Tina Landau and Robert O'Hara direct. The first two components of the trilogy -- In the Red and Brown Water and The Brothers Size -- have been produced at venues including McCarter Theatre Center; Atlanta's Alliance Theatre; New York's Public Theater; London's Young Vic Theatre; Dublin's Abbey Theatre; as well as in Barcelona, Spain. The third part of the trilogy, Marcus; or The Secret of Sweet, which receive its world premiere in this production, has been selected as one of two Outstanding New American Plays from the NEA New Play Development Program, hosted by Arena Stage. The three plays will be performed in repertory over the course of two evenings of theater, with select "Marathon Weekends" featuring all three plays in one day.
