Topdog/Underdog at Everyman Theater


Topdog Underdog

catch of the day fish (2)Most local theatre buffs are pretty excited about Everyman Theatre’s ensuing move downtown. And sure, the new theatre space promises grander things for Everyman. Much of what we love about Everyman is the selection of plays they produce each season. The plays tend to be contemporary, relevant, and requiring the kind of intimacy and human drama that is much better served in a small, simple theatre space than with velvet curtains, golden cherubs, and several layers of balconies. Opening this week at Everyman is Topdog/Underdog, written by Suzan-Lori Parks (the first African American woman to win a Pulitzer Prize for Drama).
