Nathan Louis Jackson’s candid, empathetic “Broke-ology,” about an African-American family of men, centers on two very different adult brothers and their ill and widowed father — whose frailty forces him and his offspring to make some tough decisions.

So many of us must eventually make similar family choices, and Jackson’s 2008 script hits a common chord. It’s been staged around the U.S. and will receive its Seattle premiere this weekend at Seattle Public Theater. Valerie Curtis-Newton (fresh off her lauded “Trouble in Mind” for Intiman Theatre Festival) directs a cast that includes Tyler Trerise, left, and Troy Allen Johnson, shown here, as well as Corey Spruill and Amber Wolfe.

Through Oct. 20 at Seattle Public Theater; $15-$29; www.seattlepublictheater.org.
