07-31-2015 to 08-08-2015 – Detroit, a recent Pulitzer Prize finalist by Lisa D’Amour: This play is a bittersweet comedy about the crumbling of the American middle class. In a first-ring suburb just outside a city that might be Detroit, Ben and Mary see sudden signs of life at the deserted house next door and invite their new neighbors Sharon and Kenny over for a barbecue. Ben and Mary are holding their life together despite Ben’s recent unemployment and Mary’s burgeoning alcoholism. Sharon and Kenny met at rehab, neither is employed, and they don’t own a stick of furniture. The quintessential American backyard party quickly turns into something more dangerous and filled with potential.
