Winner of the Pulitzer Prize for Drama, Topdog/Underdog is a darkly comic tale of brotherhood and family identity. The play tells the story of Lincoln and Booth, two African-American brothers (whose names were given to them as a joke) coping with women, work, poverty, gambling, racism, and their troubled upbringings. Haunted by the past, the brothers are forced to confront the shattering reality of their future.
