About the play:
In 2002, Ms. Parks won the Pulitzer Prize for Topdog/Underdog, becoming the first African American woman to receive the prize.
This landmark drama is a darkly comic fable of brotherly love and family identity. The play tells the story of Lincoln and Booth, two brothers whose names were given to them as a joke, foretelling a lifetime of sibling rivalry. Lincoln is a former three-card monte hustler now working as an Abraham Lincoln impersonator in a rundown arcade; Booth is a shoplifter who wants his brother to return to street hustling. Haunted by the past, the brothers are forced to confront the shattering reality of their future.
TOPDOG/UNDERDOG is presented by special arrangement with Dramatists Play Service, Inc., New York.
