BAY AREA PREMIERE
STARTS AUG 31, 2018
By Dominique Morisseau | Directed By Darryl V. Jones
From the author of the hit Temptations musical Ain’t Too Proud, and the Obie- award winning Skeleton Crew, comes Detroit ‘67. It’s 1967, Motown music rules, and Chelle and her brother Lank are making ends meet by holding after-hours dance parties in the basement of their home. But when Lank shelters a battered white woman, the siblings clash over more than the family business and the riots burning the black neighborhoods of their city.
Detroit ‘67 is a redemptive story of family and survival, and was the winner of the Edward M. Kennedy Prize for Drama Inspired by American History.
