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?
Following its critically acclaimed, sold out run at Atlantic Stage 2, the original cast will return for a strictly limited six week engagement at Atlantic’s Linda Gross. If you missed it the first time, grab your tickets today!
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 & Creative
“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!”

“Don’t miss this intimate gem!”
“Morisseau has heart! Her rough-edged dialogue has a touch of street poet. Gravatt is fierce and fine!”
“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!”
Atlantic’s study guides take educators and their students deeper into the story. Each guide provides a variety of discussion starters, activities, and a relevant contextual basis to immerse students in the world of the play before attending the show.
