“The Brothers Size,” a play that ran at the Everyman Theatre last year under a different production team, will be presented on June 7 and 8 at 8 p.m. at Greater Baltimore Urban League, 512 Orchard St., Baltimore.
Set in the modern Louisiana bayou, playwright Tarell Alvin McCraney’s “The Brothers Size” merges elements of poetry, music, dance, and West African mythology to tell the story of Ogun Size, a hardworking, headstrong mechanic and his younger brother Oshoosi, a drifter who has just recently been released from prison. Oshoosi is faced with the task of coming to terms with the fact that he is in love with a man.
“The play depicts two brothers’ journey to understanding not only themselves, but each other and the true meaning behind love and acceptance,” actor and the play’s producer Kyle A. Jackson told the Blade. “I am glad to be a part of such a wonderful production by a new, outstanding, out playwright like Tarell Alvin McCraney.”
