If tomorrow’s opening of Tarell Alvin McCraney’s The Brothers Size at the Young Vic goes well, theatregoers can look forward to at least two more instalments from the young African-American playwright. As McCraney confirms in an interview with Whatsonstage.com (See Today’s 20 Questions), the theatre has optioned McCraney’s next two plays in - In the Red and Brown Water, and Marcus; and the Secret of Sweet - which, The Brothers Size, comprise his Brother/Sister trilogy.

Transplanting a Yoruba myth into the soil of Louisiana, The Brothers Size tells the story of two brothers: Ogun owns an auto-repair shop, Oshooshi has just left prison and is already back on the wrong track. It runs at the Young Vic until 8 December 2007. No dates have yet been set for the other plays.
