    March 9-26, 2017

    Darren Canady's "Brothers of the Dust," unfolds in 1950s rural Arkansas, not long after the "Little Rock Nine" faced down Gov. Orval Faubus and the Arkansas National Guard and desegregated Little Rock Central High School. But the burgeoning civil rights movement is mainly background for this formulaic but beautifully performed story of a family fighting over their divergent views of the future.
