Production Description

Casting "Topdog/Underdog." Synopsis: Their father named them Lincoln and Booth…as a joke. Now grown men, their names and their histories haunt them. Trapped by their poverty, family history of abandonment, and ominously prophetic given names, these two black men find themselves locked in a dangerous game of deception, sparring over just which one’s the Player and which one’s the Played. The brothers find themselves constantly conning those on the street and, ultimately, each other in this darkly passionate fable about family grievances, racism, deep wounds and healing.
