Playing fast and loose with West African myths, The Brothers Size brings contemporary rhythms of soul, hip-hop, and R&B together with traditions of ceremonial presentation to tell the modern-day story of the Size brothers – Ogun, an auto mechanic, and Oshoosi, a recent parolee, as they walk the line between law and liberty. This fresh new drama asks its audience to be at once the community, the witness, and the judge. At its heart, The Brothers Size is an uplifting and joyous celebration of life.
