Detroit '67

Detroit '67

By Dominique Morisseau

Directed by Abdul-Khaliq Murtadha


September 29 - October 5, 2022


It’s July 1967. Detroit, Michigan. Groove along to the beat as Motown music fills the air and preparations are underway for a house party. When a mysterious stranger appears, pent-up feelings surface, dreams diverge, and the dulcet tones strike dissonant notes as riots begin to rage outside. Dominique Morrisseau's award-winning play, part of a trilogy set in her hometown of Detroit, reverberates with the rhythms and revolutions of the era. 

Detroit '67 is presented by arrangement with Concord Theatricals on behalf of Samuel French, Inc.
