The death of his best friend’s father Shango causes Marcus to reflect on the death of his own father, Elegba. Although he loves his mother and best friends Osha and Shaunta, he longs for someone to teach him to become a man. He finds a measure of solace in Ogun Size, whose brother Oshoosi had been intimate with Elegba. But when Marcus’s friends see him kiss Ogun, the gesture of comfort forces Marcus and his best friends to confront his homosexuality—an act that is complicated by the fact that Osha is in love with Marcus. Alienated and alone, Marcus becomes involved with a mysterious man he meets on the beach. When it turns out that this man is also seeing Osha, tensions and secrets bubble to the surface, and the life stories of Osha, Ogun, Marcus, Elegba, and the mysterious man intertwine to form the satisfying conclusion of The Brother/Sister Plays.
