The voice of today's generation -- the Arthur Miller of the Millennials -- young playwright Tarell Alvin McCraney penned this play that's been hailed by the Chicago Tribune as "the greatest piece of writing by an American playwright under 30 in a generation or more." West African folklore takes a trip to Louisiana's bayou in The Brothers Size, as the recently paroled Oshoosi Size returns home hoping for a fresh start working in his brother Ogun's repair shop. But when the charming and sinister Elegba enters the picture, the situation's delicate stability is threatened and fraternal ties are tested. A stirring score and flights of poetry give wings to this deep, uplifting and celebratory work. Learn More

I went with two friends to the Feb 16 Sunday matinee show. This is such a friendly, relaxed theatre experience, and there were several local actors in the audience. Damon Dering was perfect the lead as a human whale who is so sweet, so loving, and so sad. I was very moved by the story and the excellent acting; the reality on many levels, the brilliant weaving together of many themes. highly recommended.

The theater is small, and still parking was a challenge for those of us who are not familiar with the area. The play was wonderfully acted and the audience appreciated the actors and the writing. This little theater company is a good find.
