Detroit '67

“CRACKLING WITH HUMOR! Fire up some Motown, get those hips moving and everything will work out fine.” – The New York Times

Chelle and Lank are brother and sister who share their recently inherited childhood home. They work together, scraping enough money to make ends meet. To supplement their small inheritance, they have converted their basement into a small private club. Although the siblings are close, Lank, a dreamer, has secret plans for the money raised by their little nightclub: he and a friend want to buy a real bar together. Lank knows that his more conventional sister will object–she has a son at college who needs her financial support. After Lank and his buddy Sly find a badly beaten white woman on their way home one night, their situation becomes further complicated. Chelle reluctantly agrees to let Caroline (the mystery lady) stay if she pulls her weight by working in the basement–a decision she comes to quickly regret when she notices the chemistry between Caroline and her brother. 

This is the first installment in Dominique Morisseau’s play cycle The Detroit Project. Detroit ‘67 provides an unflinching look at race relations during the turbulent Civil Rights Movement and is sure to become a classic!
