From 2018 MacArthur Fellow Dominique Morisseau comes Skeleton Crew, a powerful drama “squarely in the tradition of Arthur Miller… A deeply moral and deeply American play” (The New York Times). At the start of the 2008 recession workers at one of the last remaining Detroit auto plants must decide how to move forward if, and when, the plant goes under. “Like Lorraine Hansberry and August Wilson before her, Morisseau creates characters who don’t merely speak, they sing with the vernacular of their community. Rarely has dialogue ever felt so much like eavesdropping on an actual conversation.” (Theatre Mania)
