‘My whole life only works because I’m hilarious and adorable.’

Fraternal isn’t just about the bond between two brothers, but about the burning heat of intimacy, the deafening symphony of romance and the barbaric notion of all these things sharing a single moment.

NIDA graduate Jake Stewart’s play encircles a family seemingly prone to tragedy and glares at the love that seeks to thrive in its shade. A family that knows how to have a quiet dinner, but should probably stop having such quiet dinners.

Set in an unintimidating portion of suburbia, Fraternal is a play about the expectations, limitations and appropriateness of the human heart.

The play orbits around the love between two brothers – the look of it, the taste of it, the smell of it, and whether it’s the worst thing that will ever happen to them.
