An epic dramatic trilogy set during the American Civil War, by one of America's leading playwrights.

America, 1862, during the Civil War. Hero, a slave, is promised his freedom if he joins his master in the ranks of the Confederacy against the Union. In a nation at war with itself, he must fight against those striving to abolish slavery.

The family he leaves behind debates whether to escape or await his return, and they fear that, for Hero, freedom is an empty promise that may come at a great cost.

Suzan-Lori Parks
 

A darkly comic fable of brotherly love and family identity, from the leading black American woman playwright. Winner of the 2002 Pulitzer Prize for Drama.

Topdog/Underdog 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.

Review
'Exhilarating, funny but also devastatingly sad, presenting a vivid microcosm of both family relationships and the black experience in America today.'  Telegraph
