ATC/Young Vic
The Brothers Size is Bijan Shelbani’s multi-award winning production of Tarell Alvin McCraney's 2007 play. Set in present day Louisiana, it tells the story of two brothers, Ogun and Oshoosi. Ogun is a hardworking and responsible auto-repair worker. His brother Oshoosi is an ex-con, fresh out of prison and determined to enjoy his freedom. When Oshoosi’s former cell mate tracks him down and offers him a free car, Ogun must act quickly to rescue his younger brother from being lured back into a life of crime.

Tunji played Oshoosi in the production.
The Brothers Size

Daniel Francis as Ogun and Tunji Kasim as Oshoosi lance their sibling sparring and fractious fraternity in a sublime, rhythmically shifting version of Otis Redding’s “Try a Little Tenderness,” Michael Coveney

Kasim [brings] out Oshoosi's essential innocence and sweetness...It's psychologically subtle. It's dramatically powerful. It's well worth seeing. Benedict Nightingale
The Times

Every setting...comes from the performances of Daniel Francis as Ogun and Tunji Kasim as Oshoosi. Thom Dibdin
