Twenty years later and ever relevant, Topdog/Underdog returns with the same fire and tenacity as it did when we first became captured by its words written by Suzan-Lori Parks. This all-new production stars Tony Award® nominee Corey Hawkins (In the Heights, The Tragedy of Macbeth) and Emmy® Award winner Yahya Abdul-Mateen (Watchmen, Candyman), and is directed by Tony winner Kenny Leon (A Raisin in the Sun.)
A darkly comic fable of brotherly love and family identity, Topdog/Underdog tells the story of two brothers, Lincoln and Booth, names given to them as a joke by their father. Haunted by the past and their obsession with the street con game, three-card monte, the brothers come to learn the true nature of their history. In this video, hear from Parks, Hawkins, Abdul-Mateen and Leon about what audiences can expect from this thrilling new production.
