Topdog/Underdog says
Viceroys, a black-owned artist collective, launches their inaugural mark in the theatre community with "Topdog/Underdog," a two-man drama, presenting a gripping tale of sibling rivalry at the peak of eruption. Lincoln (King) and Booth (Frazier) are brothers given these names by their father as a joke, existing together in a cramped apartment space.

Jarrett King and Matthew Frazier are both noted performers in Austin and New York City, respectively. Together, they co-founded Viceroys to create opportunity for artists of color through roles that directly tackle societal norms.

"Topdog/Underdog" received the Pulitzer Prize for Drama in 2002, and playwright Suzan-Lori Parks recently became the first African American woman awarded the 22nd $300,000 Gish Prize, in recognition of artists who have made an extraordinary impact.

About Viceroys:
Viceroys strives to awaken the need for artistic contact. With a focus on the human condition, and a commitment to producing work that challenges societal norms. Viceroys directly engages the community through explorations of how unheard voices resonate in our modern society. More info at www.tdudaustin.com
