A powerful drama from the 2018 MacArthur "Genius Grant" Fellow.
What would you do when your job is on the line? Do right by the company, your co-workers, or protect your dreams? Four workers in a Detroit auto plant, rumored to be shutting down, are looking for answers in their struggles to survive whatever comes next. From Motor City native Dominique Morisseau comes the gripping drama, Skeleton Crew.
Skeleton Crew is the final play in Morisseau's 3-Play Cycle known as The Detroit Project. Her earlier plays, Detroit '67 and Paradise Blue, complete the trilogy.
Dominique Morisseau is also a 2019 Tony Award® Nominee for Best Book of a Musical for Ain’t Too Proud: The Life and Times of the Temptations.
“A deeply moral and deeply American play.”
THE NEW YORK TIMES
“Powerfully written and well-acted … worth seeing because it grabs the audience by the heart.”
“There is romance and rhythm and a great deal of good humor in Skeleton Crew.”
“A deeply human drama about self-worth and the sense of accomplishment.”
“We need more plays that hit home like this one.”
