Parks’ Pulitzer Prize-winning fable of brotherly love and rivalry tells the story of Lincoln and Booth, named by their father before he walked out the door for good. Dressed as his presidential namesake and painted in whiteface, Lincoln sits in an arcade all day being assassinated over and over. His brother, Booth, stays in their rundown boardinghouse room practicing the street con game Three-card Monte in hopes of escaping his money woes. Haunted by their troubled past, inherited poverty, and the forces of racism, the brothers find that surviving the American Dream is the ultimate hustle in this often humorous and startling play. Don’t miss this deeply theatrical experience by one of the most adventurous playwrights of her generation.
For mature audiences only.
