Written by Dominique Morisseau, who was the 2014 recipient of the Edward M. Kennedy Prize for Drama Inspired by American History and a 2016 Obie Award Winner for Skeleton Crew, CTC is thrilled to present Detroit ’67. The play is set on the eve of the explosive riots that ravaged Detroit in July 1967. As the music and politics of the Motown era sizzle in the background, this moving, sharp-eyed drama explores the resilience of one family’s – and one American city’s – survival. According to the Minneapolis Star Tribune, this is: “A poetic play of fire-fueled dreams and frustrated love that is set against a backdrop of historic social unrest in Motown.”
