Tempers flare and old wounds are reopened in Brothers of Affliction, an unflinchingly raw look at the relationships of three troubled siblings and the dark secrets that bond them. As the brothers -- boozehound Chris, cokehead Shane and hothead Tyriq -- try to outdo one another with tales of their unhappy childhoods, each reveals his hopes, fears and insecurities about the world around him. Now presented at West End Performing Arts Center, buzz-worthy local playwright Paris Crayton III's in-your-face family drama first made a splash in Atlanta in its 2012 premiere, and has subsequently been accepted to the International Orlando Fringe Festival and Atlanta Black Theatre Festival. Robert John Connor (Jar the Floor) directs.
