Detroit '67

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 musicrules, and Chelle and her brother Lank are making ends meet by holding after-hour 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.
