The Brothers Size

Location

Public Theater, NYC

Directed by

Playing fast and loose with West African myths, The Brothers Size brings contemporary rhythms together with traditions of ceremonial presentation to tell the modern-day story of the Size brothers – Ogun, an auto mechanic, and Oshoosi, a recent parolee. This breakout hit in the 2007 Under The Radar Festival is an imaginatively fresh, new drama, in which the audience is at once the community, the witness and the judge. Brothers Size premiered under the auspices of The Foundry Producer’s Chair held by emerging producers, Stephanie Ibarra, Malcolm Darrell and David Roberts. After UTR, the production returned to Public Theater and went on to tour to The Studio Theater in DC and The Abbey Theatre in Dublin Ireland, where it was the first African American play to be seen on that historic stage.

Absorbing and emotionally resonant …  Listen closely, and you might hear that thrilling sound that is one of the main reasons you go the theater, that beautiful music of a new voice.
