topdog/underdog

featuring Eddie George

by Suzan-Lori Parks

February 9 - 24, 2019

Previews: February 7 & 8, 2019 

Tickets START AT $25

A play about two brothers juggling work, women, money, racism, and cards. While Lincoln and Booth cannot change their names or upbringing, they can change their paths in life. Oscillating between supporting each other and disagreeing about everything, these two bothers will find out what it takes to come out on top.

“The meaning of the play isn’t just confined to a man's experience,” says the playwright, Suzan-Lori Parks. "It's about what it means to be family and, in the biggest sense, the family of man, what it means to be connected with somebody else... The play speaks to who the world thinks you’re going to be, and how you struggle with that.”
