THE BROTHERS SIZE

By Tarell Alvin McCraney
Directed by DeRon S. Williams
March 3-8, 2020
In The Fine Arts Instructional Center's Delmonte Studio Theater

In the sweltering heat of the Louisiana Bayou, Ogun Size tenuously reunites with his brother Oshoosi, who has recently been released from prison. When Oshoosi’s charismatic former cellmate Elegba arrives, the two brothers find themselves on a collision course with fate in this unflinching and tender exploration of the complex bonds of brotherhood. This haunting, funny, and heartbreaking tour de force, from the Academy Award-winning writer of ‘Moonlight,’ magnifies the struggle for freedom and the need to belong somewhere. It also probes sexuality, coming of age, and the bonds of family through the use of poetry, music, movement, and mythology.

Admission: Free for Eastern students; $5 for other students and groups of 10 or more;
$10 for senior citizens; $12 for Eastern faculty, staff, and alumni; $20 for the General Public.
