New York City
Lincoln and Booth are brothers, named by their father as a joke. Lincoln sits in an arcade all day, dressed as his presidential namesake and is assassinated over and over. His brother, Booth, sits in their run-down apartment, practicing to be a great three-card Monte hustler, as Lincoln was in his youth. Susan-Lori Parks’ 2002 Pulitzer Prize-winning drama, Topdog/Underdog is a sharp, poetic look at the endgame between two brothers in America.
