The Fall Reunion Reading Series: Skeleton Crew

BY DOMINIQUE MORISSEAU
DIRECTED BY
RUBEN SANTIAGO-HUDSON

.

October 22-24, 2020

Reservations are free but required,
with a suggested donation of $25


Out of strange circumstance comes exciting opportunity! While you cannot come to us for live theater, we’re bringing our theater to you — wherever in the world you might be! We’re delighted to reunite the original cast and creative team of the critically-acclaimed Skeleton Crew for an exclusive virtual remounting.

More Info

In MacArthur Genius Grant recipient Dominique Morisseau’s third and final 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.

Skeleton Crew had its critically-acclaimed world premiere at Atlantic Stage 2 during our 2015|2016 season, transferring to our Linda Gross Theater later that season for an extended run due to popular demand! It won the AUDELCO Award for “Dramatic Production of the Year,” and it has regularly landed on the annual list of The Top 10 Most Produced Plays in America.

Run time:  The show runs approximately 110 minutes, with a brief 5-minute intermission, which will be noted by a countdown clock on your screen. Please note that the stream will be deactivated at 11pm ET for evening performances, and 6pm ET for the matinee.

Suggested Donation: $25/viewer.

Plus, a bonus event!
