Our Fathers, Sons, Lovers and Little Brothers

By Makambe K. Simamba

February 26, 2012, Florida. A 17-year-old Black boy wearing a hoodie leaves a 7/11 carrying a bag of Skittles and an iced tea. He never makes it home. Our Fathers, Sons, Lovers and Little Brothers invites us into the infamous world of one teen, into his last moments, and into his intricate dance to the afterlife.

The award-winning Our Fathers, Sons, Lovers And Little Brothers​ is a poignant tale of what it means to be a young Black man in North American society. Yes, even in Canada, the mistreatment of people of colour by authorities or armed individuals is well documented. Think of Colten Boushie or Fredy Villanueva. This story affects us all.

Performances at the MAI: March 3-7, 2021

Box Office: 514-932-1104
