The Brothers Size

by Tarell Alvin McCraney Feb. 21 – March 18, 2018 Studio Theatre Directed by Marti Gobel Featuring Marques Causey, Travis Knight and Andrew Muwongé Ogun Size is focused and straightforward, dedicating himself to his career running an auto repair shop. His younger brother Oshoosi wanders aimlessly after his recent release from prison, uninterested in following Ogun’s disciplined path. Each seeks to be free -- Ogun of worry for his brother and Oshoosi simply of the bayou country of Louisiana. So when Elegba, a man who served time with Oshoosi, arrives with an offer of a free car, the gift becomes a temptation – and perhaps a trap. Based on West African myths and rich in poetry and song, Tarell Alvin McCraney’s profound play is a tough and tender drama about what it means to brother and be brothered.

Doubt, A Parable

by John Patrick Shanley April 12-29, 2018 Cabot Theatre Directed by C. Michael Wright Featuring Colleen Madden, April Paul, Malkia Stampley and Marcus Truschinski In 1964, at a Catholic church and school in the Bronx, there is a secret. Sister Aloysius is certain she knows it. But that is not enough – not when she believes the sinner is the parish priest himself, and his victim is the boy who has just become St. Nicholas’ first black student. Equipped with nothing but her moral certainty, Sister Aloysius embarks on a personal crusade with devastating consequences. John Patrick Shanley’s Pulitzer and Tony-winning play is a master study in the crushing weight of ambiguity, a complex clash of perspectives that leaves nothing certain.
