Topdog/Underdog by Suzan Lori-Parks (26/52)

A Pulitzer Prize-winning┬áplay about two brothers, Lincoln and Booth, who are stuck in a revolving door of petty jealousies, familial obligations and personal failures. Each brother struggles with his identity and the role the culture they find themselves in will play in defining themselves. The three-card monte sits as a symbol of the fast-paced relationship that was impossible to win. Excellent read, though I can only imagine it’d be even better on stage.
