From the playwright of THE ROAD WEEPS, THE WELL RUNS DRY comes an equally powerful and poetic contemporary drama inspired be true events. Two young men growing up on the South Side of Chicago, Manny’s life is on track, and Noel’s life is derailing. Manny just sang at the White House; Noel just got kicked off the basketball team. When their paths cross, they risk everything for their dreams, leaving behind two grieving mothers and a city on the verge.
Pillsbury House Theatre and The Mount Curve Company will be back in the Dowling Studio at the Guthrie Theater September 7 – 29 with the second play in Tarell Alvin McCraney’s epic Brother/Sister Plays trilogy, THE BROTHERS SIZE.
When Oshoosi Size (Namir Smallwood) comes home from prison, he hopes to resume his happily aimless life, but his older brother Ogun (James Williams), a hard-working mechanic, cannot let Oshoosi forget his mistakes. The Brothers Size is a rich and beautiful exploration of the bonds of love between brothers and friends, using vivid language and epic vision to bring to life on stage the complexities of a generation of African-American men. In a broader context, McCraney dramatizes the ties that bind all of us together and the urges of the human heart that can rip everything apart. Does the love of family hold you back or can it help you escape fate?
