The Brothers Size
About The Brothers Size
Ogun Size is hardworking and heartbroken. Oshoosi Size is recently returned home from prison and trying to be anywhere but. 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.
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. Steppenwolf for Young Adults is thrilled to bring this third of The Brother/Sister Plays to the stage for young adults across Chicago.
