Quest for identity as trilogy plays out
Final pair of McCraney works is powerful
“In the Red and Brown Water,’’ the first play in Tarell Alvin McCraney’s trilogy, opened a couple of weeks ago at Company One, under the direction of Megan Sandberg-Zakian and showcasing the luminous Miranda Craigwell as a tragically thwarted young woman named Oya. Now come the second and third installments, “The Brothers Size’’ and “Marcus; Or the Secret of Sweet,’’ directed by Summer L. Williams with an astute eye and ear for McCraney’s intricate, multi-layered world. All three plays will run in repertory through Dec. 3.
