Skeleton Crew

Open Run

A deeply moral and deeply American play, with a loving compassion for those trapped in a system that makes sins, spiritual or societal, and self-betrayal almost inevitable

Why See Skeleton Crew?

Plays

Empathy alive amidst demise of the Motor City

Unsettling times in the Motor City round up Steinberg Playwright Award winner, Dominique Morisseau's trilogy of plays set in her home town. In the Obie Award winning hands of director, Ruben Santiago-Hudson (The Piano Lesson), a blue collar mix of characters working together in an ill-fated auto parts factory bound for foreclosure, share their insecurities as the last remaining employees.

What is Skeleton Crew about?

Set during the height of the Great Recession in 2008 the prospect of finding themselves unemployed leaves some characters of Skeleton Crew contemplating their options - on both sides of the law - while others question their allegiances towards "the man" and "the people".

The break room of this Detroit stamping plant is where the ensemble cast must determine how they will deal with their changing circumstances and who they will hold accountable. A story of how a city's financial crisis spills over into the personal lives of its inhabitants, and how basic survival is the goal.

With such affection towards her hometown community evident in her writing, it is no wonder Morisseau was honored with a Spirit of Detroit award.
