Topdog/Underdog - 2002 Pulitzer Prize for Drama

2 Male, 0 Female

Suzan-Lori Parks Price: $15.95

An extraordinary new departure for this leading black American woman playwright - a piercing play about two men

This darkly comic fable of brotherly love and family identity is Suzan-Lori Parks's latest riff on the way we are defined by history. 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 and resentment. Haunted by the past, the brothers are forced to confront the shattering reality of their future

Suzan-Lori Parks has 'burst though every known convention to invent a new theatrical language, like a jive Samuel Beckett, while exploding American cultural myths and stereotypes along the way' ~ New York Observer
