In Dominique Morisseau’s third play in her Detroit trilogy, a makeshift family of workers at the last exporting auto plant in the city navigate the possibility of foreclosure. Power dynamics shift, and they are pushed to the limits of survival. When the line between blue collar and white collar gets blurred, how far over the lines are they willing to step?
This world premiere production of Steinberg Playwright Award winner Dominique Morisseau’s bold new play is directed by Obie Award winning actor, writer and director Ruben Santiago-Hudson (The Piano Lesson, Lackawanna Blues).
“A VERY FINE NEW PLAY!
WARM-BLOODED, ASTUTE, and BEAUTIFULLY ACTED!
CLIFFORD ODETS’S dramas come to mind and so does the great
Pittsburgh cycle of AUGUST WILSON!
Squarely in the tradition of ARTHUR MILLER!
A DEEPLY MORAL and DEEPLY AMERICAN PLAY,
directed with a slow hand and quick pulse by Ruben Santiago-Hudson!”
