From Sept 3 through Oct 2, 2011.
GableStage at the Biltmore is presenting the Florida Premiere of “The Brothers Size”, a play written and directed by Miami’s own Tarell Alvin McCraney starring Teo Castellanos, Ryan George and Sheaun McKinney. Set in the Louisiana bayous, the play explores the struggles of two brothers who walk the line between law and liberty, locked in a fierce tug-of-war for their souls. This play probes sexuality, coming of age, and the bonds of family.
This is the first Florida production of a play by McCraney, the 30-year old Miami native and New World School of the Arts High School graduate. McCraney went on to DePaul University and received his Masters Degree at Yale School of Drama. He has also received the 2009 New York Times Outstanding Playwright Award “in recognition of his singular talent, whose wit and insight will be heard on our
our stages for many years to come.”
McCraney plays push the boundaries of language, form, and sexuality in provocative and poetic ways. He is also an alumnus of Voices United, a Miami non-profit that fosters cross-cultural understanding and youth action through the performing arts. Although his work has been thrilling audiences and critics worldwide (NYC, London, DC, Atlanta, Seattle,Princeton, Dublin, Barcelona & New Orleans), this is the first production of his work in his hometown.
