Topdog/Underdog by Suzan-Lori Parks

Tampa’s newest professional theatre, Fluid Expressions, debuts with Suzan-Lori Parks’ Pulitzer Prize winning play, Topdog/Underdog

Fluid Expressions is proud to present Suzan-Lori Parks’ Pulitzer Prize Winning Play, Topdog/Underdog, November 9th- 17th, 2018 at the Studio Theatre in Hillsborough Community College’s Performing Arts Building in Ybor City directed by India Davison and Clareann Despain.

A darkly comic fable of brotherly love and family identity, Topdog/Underdogtells the story of Lincoln and Booth, two brothers whose names, given to them as a joke, foretell a lifetime of sibling rivalry and resentment. Haunted by their past, the brothers are forced to confront the shattering reality of their future.

“Over the last couple of years, several of us noticed how many talented actors of color there are in Tampa Bay and we also saw that there have been limited opportunities for those talented artists,” observes Cornelio Aguilera, artistic director.

India Davison, artistic director, agrees: “Knowing that Tampa is a community that yearns for diverse arts and entertainment, we formed Fluid Expressions to create opportunities for us and by us. We’re dedicated to showcasing actors and writers of color in ways that will enrich the Tampa Bay community.”

Fluid Expressions is a professional, nonprofit performing arts company focused on expanding opportunities for historically marginalized artists and audiences in the Tampa Bay arts community.Fluid Expressions provides a supportive environment for artists of color through regular practice, workshops, and professional productions.
