Synopsis:
A darkly comic fable of brotherly love and family identity is Suzan-Lori Parks 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, forettling a lifetime of sibling rivalry and resentment. Haunted by the past, the brothers are forced to confront the shattering reality of their future.

Review:
"[A] thrilling comic drama....The play...vibrates with the clamor of big ideas, audaciously and exuberantly expressed. Like INVISABLE MAN Ralph Ellison's landmark novel of 1952, TOPDOG/UNDERDOG considers nothing less than the existential traps of being African-American and male in the United States, the masks that wear the men as well as vice versa...Ms. Parks demonstrates that she can shape a captivating narrative without sacrificing her high thematic ambitions. She even incorporates one of the more far-fetched metaphoric devices from her AMERICAN PLAY into TOPDOG--the idea of a black man portraying Abraham Lincoln in an arcade shooting booth--and gets you to accept it without blinking."

Ben Brantley, New York Times, 04/08/2002
