Topdog/Underdog, the Pulitzer Prize-winning play by Suzan-Lori Parks. After Booth is kicked out by his wife and forced to stay with his younger brother Lincoln, the two must confront their family’s past and their own troubled futures while struggling with women, poverty, racism, and gambling. Much like the brothers’ names, the play is both dark and comical while commenting on society’s expectations and the potential in brotherhood. 7:30 p.m. Thursday through November 19 at the Adrienne Arsht Center, 1300 Biscayne Blvd., Miami; 305-949-6722; arshtcenter.org. Tickets cost $50 to $55.
