After a spell of separation brought on by prison, two African-American brothers reunite through Yoruba mythology and live music.

Ritual and reality intertwine in this deeply moving fable about the bond between brothers.

Tarell Alvin McCraney’s The Brothers Size had its UK premiere in a co-production between the Young Vic and Actors Touring Company in 2007. It was remounted the following year, and received a long-awaited revival at the Young Vic in 2018.

Critic Reviews

It's the mix of instant familiarity and timeless depth that gives The Brothers Size such a charge... a taut, compassionate fable of fraternal love.

Financial Times

Bewitching study of kinship and hope.

The Times
Critic Reviews

The Brothers Size is a bracing but beautiful snapshot of Southern masculinity.

Critic Reviews

[Charles Spencer's] excitement about McCraney's talent wasn't mis-placed . . . McCraney's choppy, inventive, colloquial-poetic way with words . . . by turns comical, elusive and sweetly touching
