Les Frères (The Brothers)
N. B. Play performed in English.
Les Frères is a play inspired by Lorainne Hansberry's Les Blancs and tells the story of three estranged brothers of Haitian descent, who come home to Harlem for their father's final days. Troubled memories filled with anger and abuse come rushing back as they deal with their father's death. They are forced to deal with how each choose to deal with memories, how each have escaped, feelings of abandonment, betrayal and loss. Finally, the end asks two of the brothers if they will escape back into the lives they have forged for themselves or will they try to make new life amongst the embers of pain.
