Preview: The Brothers Size by Young Vic and Actors Touring Company
The stunning Moonlight may have taken all the thunder as Best Picture at the Academy Awards back in 2017, but writer Tarell Alvin McCraney is set to continue making waves in January with an all new staging of his play The Brothers Size.
Directed by the acclaimed Bijan Sheibani, The Brothers Size follows two African-American brothers Ogun and Oshoosi after a spell in prison, reuniting through the power of Yoruba mythology and live music as ritual and reality intertwine in this darkly enchanting play.
Starring Jonathan Ajayi, Sope Dirisu, Manuel Pinheiro and Anthony Welsh, who returns to his 2008 role of Oshoosi’s ex-cell mate Elegba, the Young Vic and Actors Touring Company are proud to present this long-awaited revival of a rare, deeply moving tale that speaks volumes about the bonds between brothers and men.
The Brothers Size plays at the Young Vic’s Main House in London from 19th January – 14th February 2018. Tickets available from their website.
