Topdog/Underdog by Suzan-Lori Parks
October 1 at 2:00 p.m.

Suzan-Lori Parks’ Pulitzer Prize-winning play is a thrilling and darkly comic fable of brotherly love and sibling rivalry. Two African-American brothers, Lincoln (nicknamed Link) and Booth, were abandoned by their parents and have depended on each other for survival since they were teens. Trapped by their poverty, family history and ominously prophetic given names, the men find themselves locked in a dangerous game of deception, sparring over who’s the player and who’s the played.

Cash or check (made payable to WVU Foundation)
