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, stays in their run down apartment, practicing to be a great Three-Card Monte hustler, as Lincoln was in his youth. This Pulitzer Prize-winning drama is a jagged, poetic look at the endgame between two black brothers in America. Topdog/Underdog traveled to Houston and Connecticut in 2003.
