About the Premiere Production:


In Dominique Morisseau’s third play in her Detroit trilogy, a makeshift family of workers at the last exporting auto plant in the city navigate the possibility of foreclosure. Power dynamics shift, and they are pushed to the limits of survival. When the line between blue collar and white collar gets blurred, how far over the lines are they willing to step?

Steinberg Playwright Award winner Dominique Morisseau’s bold new play is directed by Obie Award winning actor, writer and director Ruben Santiago-Hudson (The Piano Lesson, Lackawanna Blues).

Cast: Jason Dirden, Wendell B. Franklin, Lynda Gravatt, Nikiya Mathis, Adesola Osakalumi, Dominique Morisseau, Ruben Santiago-Hudson.
