Topdog / Underdog is the story of two brothers, abandoned by their parents as adolescents, Lincoln and Booth. Lincoln, the older brother, is now divorced, and living with Booth in a seedy, dilapidated room in a boarding house. They have no running water, but they have plenty of liquor. The room is furnished without comforts and with minimal furniture, including milk crates and a sheet of cardboard that serves as the card table for Booth to practice his 3-card monte hustle.
Suzan-Lori Parks' Pulitzer Prize winning drama has been called a physical, fun, emotionally draining masterpiece about two brothers in a power struggle for their lives. "Topdog / Underdog" represents GoKash Productions' first presentation of a non-original theatre work.
Philadelphia actors, Kash Goins and Roderick Slocum will portray the brothers, Lincoln and Booth. Directing is a young and rising Philadelphia director, Ms. Malika Oyetimein, assisted by Donja R. Love.
