Tops or Bottoms

Listen to the original cast recording of "Tops or Bottoms," a play by Todd Logan.

Set in a suburban living room, Tops or Bottoms tells the story of empty nesters, Robin and Jack Simon, who unexpectedly face the truth about their marriage and themselves.

The original cast recording is currently available above to listen for free.

Tops or Bottoms premiered with Persistence of Vision in 2003 at The Chicago Dramatists. It featured Judy Blue and Scott Jaeck and was directed by Richard Shavzin.

The Windy City Times wrote:

There are certain experiences we all go through. When these are handled in literature, on the stage, or in some other form of artistic expression, these experiences are called universal. Todd Logan has a firm grasp of the universal in his two new world premiere one acts… Logan does what good artists do best: he doesn’t tell us about these experiences or why they’re important, he dramatizes them.

Tops or Bottoms and Persistence of Vision are good examples of what can happen when playwriting, savvy, talented performers, and a tasteful creative team conspire to create something quiet, but great.


Following are two excerpts.

The first we’ll call “The Renaissance Is My Favorite Historical Period.”
