Brother Size at the Magic

Octavio Solis could be called the Midas of local theater - anything he touches turns to gold. It could in turn be argued that Tarell Alvin McCraney, the gifted playwright behind Brothers Size, doesn’t need any help. But judging from audience and critical response (across the board raves) - it certainly doesn’t hurt.

Ogun and Oshoosi return home to the Louisiana bayous for a fresh start, one that involves navigating the pitfalls of brotherhood and sexual awakening. Funny and haunting, it's an ethereal yet primal coming-of-age story about two brothers testing the bonds of family. Pulling the audience straight into the heart of the story, Brothers Size is a fresh new contribution to the American canon.
