Who We Support

The Brothers Size

Oklahoma City Repertory Theater

Award Date: May 3, 2022
Awarded: $25,000

Oklahoma City Repertory Theater is dedicated to championing new ways of making theater, supporting innovative artists, and growing the cultural ecology of Oklahoma City. THE BROTHERS SIZE examines brotherhood, coming of age, sexuality, freedom, and systemic shackles within the Black American community. The well-drawn characters and heart-wrenching narrative achieves the best of what theater can achieve: it reaches hearts and minds regardless of race or creed. The agency will work with the Urban League of Oklahoma City on opportunities for sponsored tickets for underserved members of the Black community. They are also working with Langston University, the only historically Black college or university (HBCU) in the state of Oklahoma, to reach their students with a discounted rate. Finally, they will also have panels with artists and local leaders to discuss how this play connects with the local community.
