Watch Topdog/Underdog and follow the story of two down-on-their-luck brothers whose past impacts their present adversely

Why Watch Topdog/Underdog

Topdog/Underdog is a story of sibling loyalty and rivalry, familial identity, and ultimately tragedy. The story follows two African-American brothers named Booth and Lincoln - names given to them by their father as a joke. Three-Card Monte was a street game that two brothers in the play Topdog/Underdog become fixated on. The lives of these men are full of drama as they try to escape their past, deal with racism and handle relationships with women. This story will have you thinking long after the curtain falls.
