Underground Railway Theater and Playwrights’ Theatre at Boston University bring the powerful folk parable, Ti-Jean & His Brothers, to Cambridge. A Caribbean family is in crisis: three brothers are pulled into a dangerous game with the Devil in this fanciful, dark, and ultimately hopeful story of battling despair through fierce humor and love. Ti-Jean & His Brothers celebrates resourcefulness over oppression, and of overcoming injustice through ingenuity and faith.

In commemoration of the 2010 earthquake in Haiti, and in celebration of Boston Playwrights’ Theatre’s 30th anniversary, and of its founder, Caribbean playwright Derek Walcott.
