Three provocative dramas, Paradise Blue, Detroit '67 and Skeleton Crew, make up Dominique Morisseau's The Detroit Project, a play cycle examining the sociopolitical history of Detroit. Each play sits at a cross-section--of race and policing, of labor and recession, of property ownership and gentrification--and comes alive in the characters and relationships that look toward complex, hopeful futures. With empathetic storytelling and an ear for the voices of her home community, Morisseau brings to life the soul of Detroit, past and present.
