This is an intense script, and could not have been pulled off without three equally intense actors, which Everyman certainly found in Welch, Uche, and Lawrence. Lawrence saunters around the stage in linen pants and a summer fedora, belting out songs in a choir-boy voice like there’s nothing around that could cause him a worry. Uche is clearly the baby brother, naive and full of dreams despite the hardships he’s faced, getting a boyish gleam in his eye when he talks of a picture book of Madagascar he looked at while in prison. But it’s Welch who is most memorable, perhaps simply because his older-brother role requires the most serious, imposing performance. Ogun is a classic male type: hardworking, simple, subtle about his emotions. He struggles with them throughout, and when he finally erupts at Oshoosi for all the years of torment raising him has caused him—“When you fall everyone look at me like I fucking pushed you,” he screams—the shock felt in the audience is matched by that painted on Oshoosi’s face.
