The Brothers Size

The Brothers Size

by Tarell Alvin McCraney
directed by Darryl V. Jones
September 24 – October 15, 2016

Eureka Theatre, 215 Jackson San Francisco Map It

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 is hardworking and steady. Younger brother Oshoosi is just out of prison and finding himself. The wily Elegba, 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.

Flights of poetry, music, dance and West African mythology combine in a contemporary tale that explores the tenuousness of freedom and the need to belong somewhere, to something, to someone.

Hear the Interview with John Fisher with DJ Marilyn on Let Me Touch Your Mind, KPOO radio.

Listen!

Critical Acclaim!!

“Morgan Lange does an extradordinary performance creating a young man who is both unique and troubled … John Fisher gives a superlative performance as Martin… Rudy Guerrero plays four roles [and] is pitch perfect…Ann Lawler in three roles, gives a splendid performance; and Iris Haas Biel, especially as the sexually exploratory stable girl, Jill, gives a sensual performance.”

Richard Connema, Talkin' Broadway

“Hot-Blooded Equus Intrigues.. Fisher stands among giants in the role of Dysart, a character played by Richard Burton, Anthony Hopkins, and Leonard Nimoy. Fisher tackles the role, full speed ahead through psychological intrigue, erotic exhibition, and Dysart’s sexual frustration.”

Daniel Lilly, Theatrius.com

“Young Alan Strang and his three horses are erotic, dramatic and excellent in Theatre Rhinoceros winter production. Morgan Lange.is superb as the troubled 17-year-old Alan.”

Vince Mediaa, vmediabackstage.com
