Director Paige Dunckel has skillfully steered these two through a complex, competitive script - that's difficult to imagine being written by a woman. Author Suzan -Lori Parks has spun this testosterone-laced tale of brotherly interdependence that is absorbing, poignant... tragic.
Their father named the two African-American brothers Lincoln and Booth…as a joke -- and now the joke is on them, trying to con the world with three-card monte — struggling to both take care of each other and destroy each other.
