Poverty, jokes and sibling rivalry are the foundation for Frostburg State University’s Music and Theatre Department’s production of “TopDog/UnderDog,” which will be presented as part of the student-directed Second Stage Productions. Performances are set for Nov. 5, 6 and 7 beginning at 7:30 p.m. in the F. Perry Smith Studio Theatre of the Performing Arts Center.

Recipient of the 2002 Pulitzer Prize for Drama, “Topdog/Underdog,” by Suzan-Lori Parks, is a darkly comic fable concerning two African American brothers, Lincoln and Booth, whose names were given to them as a joke by their father. Abandoned by both parents and forced to depend on one another for survival, the men, now in their 30s, struggle to shed their poverty a midst a past that is haunted by sibling rivalry and escalating resentment.

Tickets for “Topdog/Underdog” are $6 for FSU students and $12 for general admission. For more information, call the Theatre and Dance box office at 301-687-7462, Monday through Friday 9 a.m. until 12:30 p.m. and again from 1:30 until 4 p.m.
