Directed by Katrinah Carol Lewis, this darkly comic story is about two African-American brothers jokingly named Lincoln and Booth. Written by Suzan-Lori Parks, the play won a Pulitzer Prize in 2002. At the time of its release, a New York Times critic compared it to Ralph Ellison’s “The Invisible Man” in that it “considers nothing less than the existential traps of being African-American and male in the United States.” $30.
