The Brothers Size is the ultimate tug of war for a soul. The story, set on the back-roads of the Louisiana bayou, follows the recently paroled Oshoosi Size as he seeks to jumpstart his life. Working in his brother Ogun’s repair shop was not at all what he had in mind, so when his old friend Elegba rolls up, offering a different “direction,” Oshoosi quickly finds himself torn between his brother, his loyalties and his dreams. Flights of poetry, music and West African mythology slam together in a visceral tale that begins in ritual and evolves into a hot-blooded, tough and tender drama about the need to belong somewhere, to something, to someone. “The greatest piece of writing by an American playwright under 30 in a generation or more.” – Chicago Tribune
