'Detroit '67'

Event description

  • Arts and entertainment
  • Open to the public

Written by Dominique Morisseau

Directed by Crestcencia Ortiz-Barnett

It’s 1967 in Detroit. Motown music is getting the party started, and Chelle and her brother Lank are making ends meet by turning their basement into an after-hours joint. When a mysterious woman finds her way into their lives, the siblings clash over much more than the family business. As their pent-up feelings erupt, so does their city, and they find themselves caught in the middle of the ‘67 riots.

Content transparency: This play contains discussion of racial riots (rebellion), violence, harsh language, murder and an unflinching look at the turbulent civil rights movement.
