4A Presents: Topdog/Underdog by Suzan-Lori Parks
30 - 8:30PM, December 1 - 6:30PM
Performing Arts Center
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, foretelling a lifetime of sibling rivalry
and resentment. Haunted by the past, the brothers are forced to
confront the shattering reality of their future.
