A darkly comic fable of brotherly love and family identity is Suzan-Lori Parks latest riff on the way we are defined by history. The play tells the story of Lincoln and Booth, two brothers whose names were given to them as a joke, foretelling a lifetime of sibling rivalry and resentment. Haunted by the past, the brothers are forced to confront the shattering reality of their future. Suzan-Lori Parks is the author of numerous plays, including In the Blood and Venus. She is currently head of the A.S.K. Theater Projects Writing for Performance Program at the California Institute of the Arts in Valencia.… (mais)

I liked the concept, storyline, and character development in the America Play better,though I did appreciate the intimacy and interaction between the two brothers. ( )

I've been thinking about sibling rivalry and was taken in with the relationship between Lincoln & Booth. The course of this tragedy was not surprising however it left a deeper ache because it felt inevitable in some ways. Sort of like the set-up of 3-Card Monte, cycles of trauma that continue to repeat.

This is an interesting play, though I feel after reading it as if I need to see it produced. By the end, some of the ideas felt like they'd been overworked, but as a whole, it was a good read. As plays go, it is much easier to read than they generall are. There are few characters, and the story is pretty easy to follow, though I do think seeing it staged would add a great deal. If you have a chance to see this in the theater, go. If you want a play to escape into for a bit, though, this isn't a bad choice. ( )

"Topdog/Underdog" is about the struggle for power in a fraught binary of brotherhood: Lincoln is staying with his younger brother Booth (their father had a sense of humor) while he struggles to make a living as a Lincoln impersonator at a fairground. It is a play about identity: what does it mean to "impersonate" Lincoln if you ARE Lincoln? History lurks fatalistically at the edges of the stage - do their names link the brothers together forever in a Cain and Abel struggle? Do we all just replay the fratricidal violence of the past eternally? Does national history overlap, eventually becoming coterminous, with family memories?
