SPOTLIGHT ON: Steppenwolf's The Brother/Sister Plays

The Brother/Sister Plays
Steppenwolf Theatre Company
1650 N. Halsted Street
Wed-Sat at 7:30pm
Sunday at 3pm

A breakthrough theatrical event: three interconnected plays in two programs by a brilliant new American voice. Grand in scope, yet intimate and heartfelt, Tarell McCraney’s delightful stories will leave you touched and inspired.

Steppenwolf will present The Brother/Sister Plays in repertory, with In the Red and Brown Water on one evening, in rotation with the two shorter plays on another. The plays can be experienced in any order, although chronologically In Red and Brown Water comes first, The Brothers Size second and Marcus; Or the Secret of Sweet third. The three plays don’t line up in a neat linear way: they reflect on each other, echo, contradict, remind. They're less in a perfect chronology than they are "in conversation" with each other. Our repertory scheduling makes attending both programs easy, with options to see the entire story in one day on Saturdays and Sundays.

Run time for In the Red and Brown Water is 1 hour and 40 minutes, which includes one 15-minute intermission. Run time for The Brothers Size / Marcus; Or the Secret of Sweet is 2 hours and 15 minutes, which includes one 15-minute intermission.

Stay after the performance for a post show discussion with members of the Steppenwolf artistic staff, sponsored by AT&T.
