Brother Sister Plays

The Brother / Sister Plays

A trilogy of modern-day stories of kinship, love, heartache, and coming of age from Tarell Alvin McCraney, the winner of the New York Times Outstanding Playwright Award. The Brother / Sister Plays delve into the world of a Louisiana Bayou housing project, a landscape of hardship and dreams. Influenced by Yoruban mythology, modern dance, and autobiography, and populated with stories of sacrifice, heartache, and laughter, this award-winning trilogy has been hailed as “the greatest piece of writing by an American playwright under 30” (Chicago Tribune).
