by Tarell Alvin McCraney (Soulpepper Theatre). In the Deep South, music and ritual intertwine with Yoruba mythology in the story of a prodigal brothers return home. Previews from May 4, opens May 10 and runs to Jun 1 (extended), see website for schedule. $35 & up.


Moonlight writer McCraneys early script about two brothers reunion after one of them has been incarcerated is a fine play that gets a generous, lyrical staging by director Mumbi Tindyebwa Otu. As the siblings, Daren A. Herbert and Mazin Elsadig, and Marcel Stewart (as a neighbour) deliver lived-in performances, with Ken MacKenzies effective set dominated by a car thats half buried in sand, a potent metaphor for the characters entrapment. This is the kind of play that thrives on the attention and energy exchange of a live audience it wouldnt work on a screen.
