ABOUT


In this acclaimed, Pulitzer Prize-winning play, brothers Lincoln and Booth struggle to make themselves a new life out of poverty and their fraught upbringing. The brothers’ desires, rivalry and their obsession with the street-hustle game, Three Card Monte, force the men to face up to who they are and what their future holds. Set against a background of Jazz, Rap and the sounds of the street, Topdog/Underdog deals with issues of class, race, family and gambling, performed in the dark underbelly of a city.
