One of our students reminded us of Suzan-Lori Parks' Topdog Underdog at the last Table Read. He loved the story and was anxious to try his hand at this two man play about brothers, Lincoln and Booth whose life stories revolve around the street hustler's game of three-card monte. We learn about the family dynamics that shape who they are and the choices they make within the simple setting of a one room apartment.
Parks was the first African American woman to receive the Pulitzer Prize for Drama for Topdog Underdog in 2002. We honor her work and pass it on to another generation on July 1 at 7 pm.
This and all our Table Readings are free and open to the public. This script is for mature audiences. Parental discretion is advised.
