Marcus is sixteen and "sweet." Days before Hurricane Katrina strikes the housing projects of Louisiana, the currents of his life converge, overflowing into his close-knit community and launching the search for his identity on a cultural landscape infused with mysterious family creeds. A devastating tempest is brewing in the skies above, and Marcus is haunted by his father's mysterious legacy, his own sexuality, and his dreams of torrential downpours. The provocative, poignant and fiercely humorous coming-of-age story of a young gay man in the South, Marcus; or the Secret of Sweet is the stirring conclusion of The Brother/Sister Plays by Academy Award-winning playwright and screenwriter, Tarell Alvin McCraney (Moonlight).

Contains mature subject matter.
