The Brothers Size

  • By Tarell Alvin McCraney
  • Directed & Choreographed by Chip Miller

JUMP TO: Dates, Run Time, Playbill, & More

From Academy Award winner Tarell Alvin McCraney (Moonlight, Choir Boy) comes a story of freedom and family. Steadfast and responsible, Ogun Size fights to connect with Oshoosi, his aimless younger brother,  who has recently been released from prison. Weaving together the mundane and the mystic, this play invites us into the Louisiana Bayou, showing us a world of poetry, African mythology, and music. A fresh and contemporary tale of belonging, brotherhood and the ties that bind. 

New York Times Outstanding Playwright Award, 2009.
