The Brothers Size

Tarell Alvin McCraney’s “The Brothers Size”
“An absorbing and emotionally resonant drama” – The New York Times

From Academy Award-winner Tarell Alvin McCraney’s acclaimed The Brother/Sister Plays, The Brothers Size opens on our stage this coming September 2022! In this fierce and honest look at the complex bonds of brotherhood, McCraney weaves together poetry, music, and Yoruba mythology to magnify the tug-of-war between freedom and the need to belong somewhere, to something, to someone. Those prison walls extend far beyond prison gates, destroying families, infecting dreams, and mocking what hope is left after time served. In the Louisiana Bayou, brothers by blood and by mythic circumstance struggle to find a connection in the wake of incarceration. With a love that is abundant and complex, beautiful and dangerous, they navigate a road where those prison gates remain, always, in their rear view. They find themselves at a crossroads where fate, hope, and desperation collide. Where their love for each other must redefine what it means to be free. The Brothers Size sings the ancient bond of brotherhood. Tarell Alvin McCraney is an acclaimed playwright and screenwriter. His script In Moonlight Black Boys Look Blue is the basis for the Oscar-winning film Moonlight directed by Barry Jenkins, for which McCraney and Jenkins won an Oscar for Best Adapted Screenplay.
