About Topdog/Underdog

March 10 - April 9, 2017
Avenue of the Arts / BU Theatre

Lincoln and Booth are brothers: best friends and bitter rivals. Lincoln, a former 3-card monte hustler, works as a Lincoln impersonator in a shooting gallery; Booth is an aspiring grifter.  He tempts his brother to get back in the game, but the consequences could be deadly. Suzan-Lori Parks made history as the first African American woman to win a Pulitzer Prize for Drama for this darkly comic, deeply theatrical fable about family wounds and healing bonds.
