“The Brothers Size” LGBT Musical Drama | The Eureka Theatre

Join Theatre Rhinoceros for its 39th Anniversary Season. A whole new season of LGBT plays all-performed at their new home The Eureka Theatre in beautiful Downtown San Francisco.

The Brothers Size is a hot-blooded, music-filled drama from one of the country’s most exciting new voices.

Free, if you use the discount code “BROTHERSCAST” here. Otherwise, it’s $30.

In the Louisiana bayou, big brother Ogun Size is hardworking and steady. Younger brother Oshoosi is just out of prison and finding himself. The wily Elegba, Oshoosi’s old prison-mate, is a mysterious and seductive complication. A simple circle defines a world that begins in ritual and evolves into a tough and tender drama of what it means to be a brother by birth and to be a brother out of desire.

Flights of poetry, music, dance and West African mythology combine in a contemporary tale that explores the tenuousness of freedom and the need to belong somewhere, to something, to someone.

Written by Tarell Alvin McCraney. Directed by Darryl V. Jones.
