Episode Detail: The Topdog Diaries - Stage on Screen

“Topdog Diaries” profiles playwright Suzan-Lori Parks as it follows her through the creative process of her Pulitzer-winning 2001 drama “Topdog/Underdog.” The outgoing Parks' first-person “diary” begins as she completes the two-character play in 1999, and ends with its Broadway opening in April 2002. In between are rehearsals at New York's Public Theater (where “Topdog” opened in July 2001), juxtaposed with comments by stars Don Cheadle and Jeffrey Wright; director George C. Wolfe; Parks' husband, blues musician Paul Oscher; and New York Times drama critic Ben Brantley.
