by Tarell Alvin McCraney

"One of the most exciting new voices in the American theater
since the arrival of Tony Kushner"
~ San Francisco Chronicle
Following the success last year of Tarell Alvin McCraney's In the Red and Brown Water, Pillsbury House Theatre and The Mount Curve Company are coming back to the Dowling Studio with The Brothers Size. This exuberantly theatrical drama from one of the country's most exciting new voices weaves together brothers, the bayou, and African mythology to create a stylized story of love and heartache. The production stars James Williams, Namir Smallwood and Gavin Lawrence
When Oshoosi Size (Smallwood) comes home from prison, he hopes to resume his happily aimless life, but his older brother Ogun (Williams), a hard-working mechanic, cannot let Oshoosi forget his mistakes. Does the love of family hold you back or can it help you be free? The Brothers Size dramatizes the ties that bind all of us together and the urges of the human heart that can rip everything apart.
In the Red and Brown Water was hailed as the #1 Show of 2011 by Ed Huyck of City Pages and Rohan Preston of the Star Tribune. Tony-nominated Marion McClinton returns to direct what is sure to be an unforgettable theater event.
