Don’t miss the Alabama premiere of what The Chicago Tribune hails as “The greatest piece of writing by an American playwright under 30 in a generation or more.”
Infused with the music and rhythms of Africa and the South, The Brothers Size transforms West African mythology into a modern-day drama set in the Louisiana bayou. After his release from prison, Oshoosi seeks to enjoy his new freedom and find his way back into society. Ogun, his older brother, attempts to help by hiring Oshoosi at his car shop. The arrival of someone from Oshoosi’s past threatens both his freedom and bond with his brother.

THE BROTHERS SIZE is presented by special arrangement with Dramatists Play Service, Inc., New York.
