The 2002 Pulitzer Prize winning play, set in a rundown New York apartment tells the story of two brothers as they explore the competition between them. It is a dog-eat-dog world, and the play dramatizes the contradiction between dreams of a possible life and a present which is as dangerous as it is illusory. (
