Skeleton Crew

By DOMINIQUE MORISSEAU
Directed by RUBEN SANTIAGO-HUDSON

Atlantic Stage 2
January 6 – February 14, 2016

Linda Gross Theater

May 13 – June 19, 2016


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?

Reviews

New York Times Critics' Pick Logo

 

“A very fine new play! Warm-blooded, astute, and beautifully acted! Clifford Odets’s dramas come to mind and so does the great Pittsburgh cycle of August Wilson! Squarely in the tradition of Arthur Miller! A deeply moral and deeply American play, directed with a slow hand and quick pulse by Ruben Santiago-Hudson!”

the new york times

“Don’t miss this intimate gem!”

ny post

 

“Morisseau has heart! Her rough-edged dialogue has a touch of street poet. Gravatt is fierce and fine!”

Variety

 

“A taut and vibrantly acted drama with vivid characters, keen-eared dialogue, and inside insights into this working class world. Morisseau’s final chapter is built to last!”

Ny daily news

 

“A performance so powerful that the character seems to rise up out of the play!”
