Regional Premiere
The Brother/Sister Plays:
Marcus; or The Secret of Sweet

By Tarell Alvin McCraney
Directed by Dee Covington

A devastating tempest is brewing in the skies above, and sixteen-year-old Marcus is haunted by his father’s mysterious legacy, his own sexuality, and his dreams of torrential downpours. In this tender, hypnotic, dream-like conclusion to The Brother/Sister Plays, a young man’s search for meaning draws him deeper and deeper into the dark of the Louisiana bayou, as rising waters threaten to consume his whole world, and a storm for the ages approaches.
