DETROIT

Written By Lisa D’Amour   |   Directed By Kevin Harger   |   Rated R

 

In a first-ring suburb just outside a city that might be Detroit, the newly unemployed Ben and the burgeoning alcoholic Mary see sudden signs of life at the deserted house next door and invite their new neighbors Sharon and Kenny over for a barbecue. As the action unfolds we learn that Sharon and Kenny met at rehab, neither is employed, and they don’t own a stick of furniture. The quintessential American back-yard party turns quickly into something more dangerous—and filled with potential. Detroit was a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize in 2012, and won the Obie Award Best New American Play in 2013.

 

 

NEW Louisiana Sales Tax will be added to ticket price.

A sharp X-ray of the embattled American psyche as well as a smart, tart critique of the country’s fraying social fabric, Ms. D’Amour’s dark comedy is as rich and addictively satisfying as a five-layer dip served up with a brimming bowl of tortilla chips.” – NY Times.

 

“…totally nails the great, deep malaise of middle-class suburbia, with a sustained energy and a wicked eye for telling details…funny as hell.” – NY Post.
