Gary DeWitt Marshall and Curtis McClarin will star in South Coast Repertory's production of Suzan-Lori Parks' Topdog/Underdog, to perform on the Julianne Argyros Stage, January 8-29. Seret Scott will direct.

Winner of the Pulitzer Prize, the play tells the story of two African-American brothers: Lincoln (McClarin) is a former three-card monte hustler now working as an Abraham Lincoln impersonator in a rundown arcade; Booth (Marshall) is a shoplifter.

Marshall starred on Broadway in The Song of Jacob Zulu, with television credits including 24 and Life on Mars. McClarin performed on Broadway in Bring in 'Da Noise, Bring in 'Da Funk, with Off-Broadway credits including The Good Negro and King Hedley II.

The design team will include Shaun Motley (set), Soojin Lee (costumes), Jaymi Smith (lighting), and Sam Lerner (sound).
