Marcus at American Conservatory Theater


Set in the projects just days before Hurricane Katrina strikes, Marcus; or The Secret of Sweet is the warm and resonant tale of a young black man exploring his identity in a world of family intrigue, Louisiana myth, and sexual awakening. Third in The Brother/Sister Plays trilogy - the first two were presented at Magic Theatre and Marin Theatre Company in this groundbreaking, three-theater partnership - Marcus is the largest in scope and beautifully produced on ACT's stage.

Compared to Eugene O’Neill and Sam Shepard by The New York Timesplaywright Tarell Alvin McCraney’s work has also been called “the greatest piece of writing by an American playwright under 30 in a generation or more,” by The Chicago Tribune.
