Summary

"One of the most exciting new voices in the American theatre since the arrival of Tony Kushner."
—San Francisco Chronicle

“McCraney is fast gaining a reputation as one of the most promising young voices in American theatre.”
—U-T San Diego


“The greatest piece of writing by an American playwright under 30 in a generation or more.”
—Chicago Tribune


Oshoosi Size is just out of prison and looking for a fresh start, but a job in his brother's car repair shop is not what he had in mind. When an old prison mate appears with an enticing gift, a fierce tug-of-war ensues which will test the bounds of family, friendship, and his dreams. A poetic, highly theatrical work infused with West African mythologies and pulsing with the rhythms of the Louisiana Bayou, award-winning playwright Tarell Alvin McCraney spins a powerful tale of freedom, desire, and the irrepressible power of the human heart. Contains strong language and adult situations.
