Interior Set

When a stranger crashes your party, how far will you go to keep him? Inside this East Village loft, two women and the stranger they've brought home kick off a late night birthday celebration ripe with flirtations and booze-fueled confessions. When a fourth enters the mix, their sexually-charged celebration has grisly consequences. Brother intersects race and class as it unveils four very real characters who spiral into an extremely surreal situation. Stereotypes are projected, assumptions are tested and predictability is led in a tango until the shocking finale.

"American theatre has found a rare new voice in Lisa Ebersole, who wrote, directed, and performs in the short, tense drama Brother. Every beat is fraught with interest and impact. Ebersole presents a world that is both recognizable and entirely her own." - Backstage

"In the manner of Neil LaBute and Patrick Marber, Ebersole doesn't shy away from questions of racism and social injustice." - theatremania.com

"Finally, etiquette dilemmas worthy of our day and age: Just how many racist slurs should you fling at a guest before clubbing him to death? And should you sleep with him first? Daring to answer, Lisa Ebersole's Brother watches four disaffected youths experimenting with varieties of abuse." - Time Out New York
