Topdog/Underdog is about two African American brothers, named Lincoln and Booth, who banter about playing three card monte during their own game of one-upsmanship. Parks encapsulates 400 years of African American history in a Cain-and-Abel fable, where the promise of American Dream gets tested in the deception of a con game. In June The New York Times named this tensely funny and dead serious tragicomedy the best American play of the last 25 years.
