THEATRE. Tarell Alvin McCraney’s ‘The Brothers Size’ For Limited Engagement In SF.


For a limited engagement, playwright Tarell Alvin McCraney, director Darryl V. Jones and the Rhinoceros Theatre presents ‘The Brothers Size’.

Two brothers, the Louisiana bayou, and West African mythology swirl together in this treasured theatrical event that will leave you breathless. A hot-blooded, music-filled drama from one of the country’s most exciting queer African-American voices.

In the Louisiana bayou, big brother Ogun Size (Lakeidrick S. Wimberly) is hardworking and steady. Younger brother Oshoosi (Gabriel Christian),  is just out of prison and finding himself. The wily Elegba (Julian Green), Oshoosi’s old prison-mate, is a mysterious and seductive complication. A simple circle defines a world that begins in ritual and evolves into a tough and tender drama of what it means to be a brother by birth and to be a brother out of desire.
