Skeleton crew

july 3 - 18, 2024 in Alternating Rep

The powerful conclusion to Dominique Morisseau's Detroit cycle trilogy.

In 2008 Detroit, a small automotive factory is on the brink of foreclosure, and a tight knit family of workers hangs in the balance. With uncertainty everywhere, the line between blue collar and white collar becomes blurred, and this working family must reckon with their personal loyalties, their instincts for survival and their ultimate hopes for humanity. Nominated for three 2022 Tony Awards including Best Play, Dominique Morisseau’s powerful and tense play stars Shinnerrie Jackson.

“Warm-blooded, astute…a very fine new play.” - New York Times
