I've been working on a soundtrack and some mixes for the Scottish premiere of Topdog / Underdog, the Pulitzer prize-winning play from African-American playwright, Suzan-Lori Parks. The play chronicles the adult lives of two African American brothers, Lincoln and Booth, as they cope with women, work, poverty, gambling, racism, and their troubled upbringings. The play is set in 70s Brooklyn, so the director wanted a mix of 70s/80s funk with a few old school hip hop songs. For more info check this site: http://citz.co.uk/whatson/info/topdog_underdog/
