As the Great Recession hits Detroit, a makeshift family of auto workers faces an uncertain future.

November 14 – December 10, 2017

in the Bingham Theatre

Faye, Dez, and Shanita are a tight-knit trio of auto workers who always look out for each other. When rumors fly about their factory’s closing, all three face tough decisions about the future, while their foreman, torn between his team and his career, has to decide where his loyalties lie. As the Great Recession hits Detroit, is it time for all of them to start looking out for themselves? With compassion and insight, acclaimed playwright Dominique Morisseau takes a timely, compelling look at blue-collar America.

Audience Advisory: Contains strong language and herbal cigarette smoking.
