Bunny Best has met her unfortunate end after a mishap at a Gay Days parade. Now her two sons, Kyle and Hamilton, have the task of arranging her funeral and caring for her most beloved companion, a troublesome Italian greyhound named Enzo. In the bustle of obituary-writing, eulogy-giving, and dog-sitting, sibling rivalry quickly reaches its peak and years of buried contentions surface.


"Funny, bittersweet, tightly written and profound in its own way, Brothers is MacIvor at his best. "

- Jeff Cotrill

"The Best Brothers feels like MacIvor's proof that pleasantness and profundity can live side by side, that a dog can be photo prop and a metaphor for life, that there is a kind of wholeness to everything. "

- David Berry
